Lake Wylie (NC/SC) Summer Fishing Report – Updated August 18

  • by Jay

Catfish: Fair to good. Captain Rodger Taylor (803-517-7828) reports that despite the heat some nice catches of catfish have been taking place.  The best pattern has been drifting fairly deep water along the main river channel with cut bait.   The anchored bite has been pretty slow, particularly when there is no current.

Bass: Slow.  FLW angler Bryan New reports that fishing remains really tough, with tournament weights significantly below normal.  Fishing shallow with topwaters, throwing a jig around docks and concentrating on offshore points and humps have all been fairly unproductive.  The best pattern has probably been searching for schooling fish.
