Re: Need fishing report for Wateree
LAKE WATEREE: Striped Bass: Good. Fish in the lower part of the lake using topwaters, shiners, or goldfish. Largemouth Bass: Fair to Good. The bite is inconsistent from day to day but fishermen are catching some nice stringers. Look for higher water temperatures in the stained water higher up the lake – 55 or 56 degrees instead of the typical 50-52 degrees. In plastic worms try green pumpkin or red shad colors and also fish dark jigs. Crappie: Great. As the water warms the crappie bite continues to get better and better. Catfish: Very good. Multiple 40 pounders have been taken in the last two weeks. Target big blue cats using cut bait fished on the edges of holes.
