Lake Wateree:

  • Crappie: Fair to good. When it's warm you can still land fish in the grass. Check around the shallows that have a nearby deep drop. Docks with brush are always a safe bet in the 8-13 foot range.

Lake Wateree:Crappie: Fair to good. Veteran tournament angler Will Hinson reports that crappie fishing is picking up. Fish are migrating north up the river, and lots of fish are being caught on the river ledge itself in 18-22 feet of water. It can take some time to locate fish, but once you do anglers should hover in that area and tight-line. Fish will suspend up and down the water column in approximately 16-20 feet depending on temperatures – on cooler days they will be at the deeper end of the range and on warmer days the opposite. As temperatures get very cold they will stay right on the bottom. For now hooks and minnows are working best with a few fish caught on jigs – results on long-line trolling have been very scattered.Largemouth Bass: Slow to fair. FLW Angler Dearal Rodgers reports that fishing has been pretty tough on Lake Wateree. Shad are in the creeks, and the best pattern is to fish topwater lures such as buzzbaits and Zara Spooks first thing. Later in the day the best pattern is to look for suspended fish under docks on flats, throwing spinnerbaits and crankbaits. Dearal is having the most success in the lower and mid-lake, from Beaver Creek to the dam.
