Lake Wateree (SC) Summer Fishing Report – Updated August 17

Crappie: Fair to good.  Will Hinson advises that fish are holding in brush piles along the main river channel and they are biting pretty well.  The best bite has been on jigs.  Some fish are also being caught deep around bridges.

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: Fair.  Dearal Rodgers reports that fish are still being caught shallow.  Early in the morning fish can be caught on topwaters, and once the sun gets up they will take worms dragged on the bottom.  Fishing docks with jigs and worms has also been working.
