I haven't fished that river in a while but I do believe they are in there. Can't keep them though, I wouldn't mind going if I'm not doing anything.
Is that picture recent? Very nice catch.

That fish was last year below I-26 bridge. I have not been this year. We never keep any fish, all catch and release. I understand legislature just voted new regs for July. Does anyone know anything about them?

Ah, yes...below I26. I have always wanted to go down there but I don't have a Jon-boat small enough to get there safely. I don't really know Saluda river that well and I have seen how shallow it can get at some parts. I do have a raft that I'm thinking about getting a trolling motor for...
Either ways, good luck if you go and let us know if you catch anything.

Seasonal Santee Cooper striped bass closure begins June 1

Seasonal closure of the Santee Cooper System striped bass fishery is set to begin June 1 and will extend through Sept. 30. No striped bass may be harvested or possessed for any reason during the summer months. This closure, along with the open season bag limit of three fish per day and a minimum size of 26 inches, was signed into law May 2008 to address the ailing striped bass fishery.

Does this mean no catch and release too?
