Conditions : Lake Murray: Striped bass: Good. Captain Brad Taylor (803-331-1354) reports that the best fish are being caught on down-lines fished 50-80 feet deep in the lower lake. The free-line bite has pretty much gone away and mostly smaller fish can be found in the creeks.

Crappie: Good. Captain Brad Taylor reports that good numbers of crappie are still being caught over brush in 18-25 feet of water. Minnows are pretty much the only way to catch fish right now.

Catfish: Good. Captain Chris Simpson (864-992-2352) reports that fan-casting a variety of baits – including dip baits and cut herring – in 10-25 feet of water has been effective for channel catfish. Night fishing is still much more productive than fishing during the heat of the day.

Bass: Slow to fair. Bass fishing has slowed significantly, with only a sporadic early bite and then anglers struggling to catch fish off points and deeper brush.
