About Dog River Reservoir

The Dog River Reservoir in Douglas County is not only a beautiful natural resource in the area but is also the principal supply of drinking water. This reservoir, due to its importance and its sights, has plenty of rules in place, but the activities offered there can definitely make up for it.


Recreational activities of this 78 square mile basin include fishing, boating, and paddling. The Recreational Complex, or known by locals simply as “the complex,” offers a boat dock, fishing pier, picnic tables, grills, a boat rental pavilion, and a gazebo.


The complex also has its own brochure with information on fees and regulations for the reservoir.

Fishing Info

The reservoir has plenty of fishing available to anyone who is 16 and older. Fishermen are required to have a current Georgia fishing license and must follow all of the Department of Natural Resources regulations.


That being said, anglers can look forward to catching catfish, crappie, carp, sunfish, bream, and bass, but it should be noted that there is a strict catch-and-release policy in place for the lake. Gasoline-powered boats or boats with a length longer than 16 feet are not permitted.
