Conditions : Lake Wateree: Crappie: Good. Will Hinson advises that fish have moved a bit shallower but they are still in brush along the main river channel. Minnows will catch fish but Fish Stalker Jigs have been working very well.

Catfish: Fair to good. Captain Rodger Taylor (803-517-7828) reports that the best pattern is drifting along the main channel in the mid-lake area with cut white perch or shad. Some fish can also be caught early and late anchoring in the shallows, and the heat of the day is generally a slow – and uncomfortable – time to fish.

Bass: Slow. Dearal Rodgers reports that recent tournament weights have been very low, and there just isn’t very much happening on the bass fishing front. Limits are hard to come by and fishermen are really struggling to get bites. Early in the morning there has been some occasional topwater activity, and some fish are hitting the surface chasing shad. A deep bite has been almost non-existent.

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.
