Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : Lake Marion: •Catfish: Fair to good. Captain Jim Glenn reports that catfishing appears to be improving on the lakes, and his boat has begun to catch some good catfish in shallow water while anchored. Teenage-sized fish as well bigger fish have been landed. Night-time shallow water fishing is also starting to come on, and some fish have been caught in this pattern fishing in both lakes recently. Good fish have also been caught drifting in middle depths recently.

Largemouth bass: Fair to good. Reports indicate that fish can be found up shallow where they have moved into pre-spawn and spawning locations, but there are also still a number of fish out deeper. Water temperatures have not moved up as much as usual because of inconsistent air temperatures and then the cool freshwater inflow from the rivers. Regardless, the best pattern as more and more fish arrive shallow is to fish around shallow cover including trees, grass and lily pads with soft plastics.

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.
