Doc Hollis is a clear, salty lake with aquatic vegetation. A "no harvest", catch-and-release rule on largemouth bass is in effect to maintain quality bass fishing. Channel catfish are stocked annually, and a limit of 6 channel catfish is in effect. No boats are allowed because Doc Hollis Lake is highly vulnerable to golden algae blooms that can cause fish kills. Anglers are asked not to dump water or bait into the lake after fishing. Fishing access improvements are planned.

Daily/Size Limits:

All largemouth bass must be returned to the water unharmed immediately after being caught (no harvest allowed). Channel and/or blue catfish: six combined per day. Motors (electric or combustion) are prohibited.

Methods:

Allowed methods: up to two rods and reels per person, bowfishing.

See special area regulations for Sandy Sanders WMA.
