Conditions : Lake Wateree: •Catfish: Good to very good. There is a very good catfish bite upriver (where a few striper are also being taken on the bottom). This is despite the fact that there has not been a large-scale movement up bait up the river – fish seem to know it’s coming. Anchoring and fishing with shad and white perch on the bottom both seem to be equally effective. When current is not present the shallow flats off the river can be hot areas as fish move out of the channel to rest and feed. Further down the lake numbers of fish have been found on the shallow margins near the main channel as well as further back in the creeks, where drifting in 7 to 15 feet of water is a productive pattern. Anchor fishing in the lower lake will also be productive, and cut threadfin or gizzard shad is a good bait choice.

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.
