AHQ INSIDER Lake Greenwood (SC) Summer Fishing Report – Updated June 9

  • by Jay

The newest Lake Greenwood fishing report, updated July 1, can be found at:

June 9

Lake Greenwood water levels have risen to the low 80s, and water levels are at 439.0 (full pool is 440.0).

The bassfishing has turned around on Lake Greenwood, and veteran tournament angler Stan Gunter reports that it took 18 pounds to win a night tournament on Wednesday.  Fish are solidly in a summer pattern and there are some good fish getting out there deep.  The best fishing is coming fishing around brush in 15-18 feet of water with deep diving crankbaits like the 6XD, DD-22, or DT-16 or big, Texas rigged worms like Zoom Ole Monsters.  While Stan is targeting the middle of the lake deep fishing is good all over from one end to the other.

First thing in the morning you can still catch some fish on topwater lures around sea walls, but it’s rare to catch a good one that way.

The catfishbite is still very strong on Greenwood, and Captain Chris Simpson reports that both drifting and anchoring are working to catch channel cats. Drifting in and out of the feeder creeks on the lower end, and across shallow flats up the rivers, are both working well.  Target 5-15 feet of water with shrimp and cut herring.  It also working to anchor on points in 5-20 feet and fan cast dip baits, especially for numbers of fish.

At night the flathead bite has been good with live bait anchored on shallow, brush-filled humps and points.
