Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : Lake Marion: Bass: Fair to good. Steve Harmon reports that some really nice bags have been caught recently, with topwater lures fished shallow the best pattern.

Catfish: Fair to good. Captain Jim Glenn (843-825-4239) and Captain Steve English (843-729-4044) report that fishing activity has been light since the hurricane, but before the storm it was apparent that the lake has a lot of small blue catfish right now. They can be caught on cut baits as well as worms and other bait. Bigger fish can also be picked up at a variety of depths, with nighttime often offering the best action.

Crappie: Fair. Captain Steve English reports that even after the storm crappie are still holding in the same areas, with minnows and jigs both catching fish. Crappie are over shallower brush in the upper lake but deeper brush in the lower lake.

Bream: Fair. Captain Steve English reports that bluegill are starting to stack up on brush piles where they will take crickets and worms, but the fish are still mostly small.

About: - Lake Marion and Lake Moultrie are part of the Santee Cooper lake system.  The two lake combine for over 170,000 surface arces and are joined by the 6.5 mile Diversion Canal. At this time the lakes hold a world record Channel Catfish (58 Ibs) and a Warmouth weighing 2.2 Ibs was caught in a creek a few miles from lake Marion. These lakes held the record for striped bass until 1977, its weight was 55 Ibs. State records held are: Largemouth Bass (16.2 Ibs), Black Crappie (5 Ibs), Chain (Jack) (6.4 Ibs), Channel Catfish (58 Ib.), Arkansas Blue (109.4 Ibs)

The Santee Cooper Lakes vary from shallow swamps and blackwater ponds to vast open water with a multitude of underwater structures. Lake Marion was not completely cleared, as a result, fishermen will find there are thousands upon thousands of stumps, standing dead tree trunks and live cypress trees. Lake Moultrie is more open and is 14 miles across at its widest point.

These lakes do not ice over during the winter and there is no closed season for fishing season. Weather permitting, fishermen can fish year round.
