Water Condition

Conditions : Lake Moultrie: •Catfish: Slow. Captain Jim Glenn reports that fishing remains slow. Try drifting and anchoring with cut bait.

•Largemouth bass: Very slow. Captain Steve English reports that bass fishing activity is light to non-existent on the Santee Cooper lakes right now. If anglers are willing to put in a lot of time fish may be catchable around cypress trees, but there is no easy pattern right now. Many fish are probably out deeper following bait schools where they are more difficult to target. In the Santee and Cooper Rivers there is better bass fishing right now.

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.
