Lake Wylie and Lake Wateree Catfish Report – Updated June 2

  • by Jay

Lake Wylie Catfish: Fair. Captain Rodger Taylor (803-517-7828) reports that priority one for the fish is spawning, and that can make for a tougher catfish bite.  Anglers need to display a lot of flexibility and be willing to move around, anchor, drift and try different baits.  While it is still worth trying up the river for a big bite, particularly when there is current, more catchable fish may be found in the less riverine areas.

Lake Wateree 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.
