South Carolina Fishing Areas

South Carolina offers a diverse range of angling opportunities, with popular destinations including Lake Marion, Lake Moultrie, and the Charleston Harbor. These locations offer anglers the chance to catch species such as largemouth bass, catfish, bream, and crappie.

The best times of year to fish in South Carolina vary depending on the species, but generally, spring and fall offer prime conditions with cooler temperatures and active fish. Average temperatures in the spring and fall range from the mid-50s to mid-70s Fahrenheit. Summer can also be productive, but anglers should be prepared for hot and humid conditions.

When it comes to bait and lures, live bait such as worms and minnows can be effective for catching panfish and catfish. For bass, lures such as crankbaits and topwater baits can be successful. Fly fishing is also popular in South Carolina, particularly in mountain streams where trout can be found.

Interesting fishing facts about South Carolina include the state record for largemouth bass being 16 pounds, 2 ounces, and the state also offers opportunities for saltwater fishing along the coastline with species such as redfish and speckled trout. Additionally, South Carolina is home to the Santee Cooper lakes, which are known for their trophy-sized catfish.
