Conditions : Lake Wateree: •Crappie: Fair to good. Veteran tournament angler Will Hinson reports that the crappie bite is pretty good on Lake Wateree right now, but the key is to focus on main lake brush. Fish can be caught from the river run to the dam out on the main lake, but heading up the creeks there seem to be fewer and smaller fish. Target brush from 18-22 feet deep, and early in the morning fish will be suspending just above the brush. As the sun gets up they will move closer to the bottom of the cover. Minnows will catch fish but Fish Stalker Jigs in Pearl White, Ugly Green and Robin Egg are working better right now.

Largemouth Bass: Fair to good. FLW Angler Dearal Rodgers reports that the deep bite on Lake Wateree is pretty good right now. Fish around ledges, humps and points with deep water nearby. The best action is coming on jigs and Carolina rigs, but it’s worth throwing deep-diving crankbaits, too. Dearal reminds anglers not to rule out dock fishing in the summer, but target docks that are either in deep water (15 or more feet) or at least close to it. Docks near creek channels can be particularly productive.

About: -

Lake Wateree is a 13,250 acre man-made lake. It is known for crappie, bass, catfish and bream in one of South Carolina's oldest man-made lakes. With more than 13,000 surface acres and 242 miles of shoreline, the lake is a year-round favorite of campers, fishermen and recreational boaters. Public access is provided through a number of public boat ramps and Lake Wateree State Recreation Area.

The 238-acre park’s offerings include a tackle shop/park store with refueling dock and public boat ramp. A large population of crappie, bream, largemouth bass, catfish and later, striped bass, has made the lake a popular fishing spot since the dam was built in 1919 (making it one of the state’s oldest).

The park’s wooded, lakeside campground has 72 sites, including many that can accommodate large RVs and all with water and electrical service. Day visitors and campers also can enjoy the numerous picnic tables, playground and the mile-long nature trail through the quiet woods.
