Conditions : Lake Wateree: •Catfish: Good. Captain Rodger Taylor reports that at this time of year he likes to start out anchoring early – wind permitting – by fan-casting multiple baits near the river channel drop from about 10-12 feet on out to 20-25 feet of water. He finds this is a good way to pick up a good fish, particularly mid-lake around June Creek. One the sun comes up and some wind develops he will usually switch to drifting the lower 2/3 of the lake from Dutchmans all the way to Colonel Creek. There are plenty of fish in this range and on recent trips he has found the 20-30 foot range to most productive. Right now the good fish seem to be a little bit deeper. As on Wylie the fish will be scattered out, and his boat may drift 75 or 100 yards without a bite then get a double. White perch will work but gizzard shad are hard to beat for the next several months.

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.
