Lakes & Reservoirs

Lake Wateree Sponsored by
Date 21-Jul-14
Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Lake Wateree: •Crappie: Fair to good. Crappie have moved into a traditional summer pattern, and if you get a hook near a brush pile in the right depth range you should get bit. Minnows and jigs are both catching fish, and Fish Stalker Jigs in Ugly Greem, Pearl White and Blake Emerald have been working very well.

•Catfish: Very good. Fish are settling into a summer pattern although some fish are still in a post-spawn mode. There is a very strong bite on the flats in 9-12 feet of water for anglers using cut bait. Cut white perch and shad are both equally strong baits, and small white perch are readily available using hook and line on the flats.

•Largemouth Bass: Good. With hot summer temperatures bass remain in deep water. Some smaller bass can still be caught shallow early around grass and rocky points with shad-style topwater, spinnerbaits, and crankbaits. Better quality bass are coming from deep points, ledges, and underwater humps with deep diving crankbaits in chartreuse color, big worms in junebug, and Carolina-rigged plastics in watermelon/brown colors. Concentrate on depths of 10-20 feet.

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.
