Conditions : Lake Wateree: Bass: Good. Dearal Rodgers reports that fish can be found both shallow around the grass as well as deeper in 10-15 feet of water around structure, but the best bite is in the transitional zone between shallow and deep water. Buzzbaits, spinnerbaits, jigs and soft plastics will all catch fish.

Catfish: Fair. Captain Rodger Taylor (803-517-7828) reports that most fish are focused on spawning, and that can make for more challenging catfish conditions. While it is still worth trying up the river for a big bite, particularly when current is present, the best bite may be further down the lake where pre-spawn and post-spawn fish are more likely to be found. Anglers should experiment with a variety of cut baits to find what the fish want.

Crappie: Good. Will Hinson advises that the largest numbers of fish are moving towards mid-depth brush where they will eat jigs and minnows. With clarity best in the lower lake the best catches have come from that area.

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.
