Conditions : Lake Moultrie: •Striped bass: Good. Linwood Thornhill reports that anglers are having great success catching fish, and were it not for the low keeper ratio this would be a “very good” bite. Particularly on Lake Moultrie striped bass are schooling from 3 p.m. until dark and anglers are following the birds to locate them and then casting bucktails and spoons. The hatchery area has been good. Fish are generally over 25-50 feet of water and some anglers are drift-fishing live bait to catch them.

Crappie: Fair to good. Captain Steve English reports that before the flooding he was catching 50-70 crappie per trip in the upper lake, but the influx of freshwater has turned the bite off so much that he is having difficulty even getting a bite up there.

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.
