Conditions : Lake Wateree: •Crappie: Good. Veteran tournament angler Will Hinson reports that crappie are being caught all over the lake right now as, before the extreme cold, water temperatures remained relatively high and fish were pretty active. Fish have been caught around Clearwater Cove in the mouths of pockets just off of deeper water – while they are not about to move up, they are holding in places as if they were staging to go shallower. A lot of fish are also further up the lake around the State Park, and of course there are a lot of fish up the river channel. Regardless of the area of the lake the magic depth seems to be about 18-22 feet of water, with fish almost right on the bottom. The primary technique has been tight-lining with minnows on plain hooks. On warmer days look for fish to move into the creeks in 15-18 feet of water.

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.
