Conditions : Lake Wateree: •Largemouth Bass: Good. Lots of fish are being caught shallow right now on shad imitation lures such as swimbaits, crankbaits and some soft plastics. When there is some wind spinnerbaits are producing. First thing there has been a good topwater bite, with buzzbaits hard to beat. A few fish are starting to move deep where they will be caught around ledges, humps and points, but for now shallow seems to be the place to fish.

•Catfish: Slow to fair. The catfish bite is off on Lake Wateree, probably because the spawn is in full force. This happens every year and typically correct itself in a week or two when fish will go back to feeding normally. Fish can still be caught at a slower rate, and drifting the flats in 10-15 feet of water should still catch a mess of fish – it’s just harder work than usual. Most types of cut bait seem to be working about the same right now.

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.
