With over five counties to explore and 171,000 acres of accessible water to get to know, you will definitely want to pack those flip-flops and hiking shoes.
Since the weather in South Carolina stays pretty mild all year, our lakes never freeze over (like they do up north) allowing anglers to fish all year long. Spring is our prime season with bream, crappie, catfish and bass and striped bass beginning to bed around the lakes.
