Santee Cooper Fishing Guide
Lake Marion fishing for Crappie and CatfishSantee Cooper Fishing Guide

The Santee Cooper lake system consists of two lakes, Marion 110,600 acres and Moultrie 60,400 acres. These two lakes are joined by the 6.5 mile Diversion Canal. These world-class fishing lakes were created from 1939-42 for a hydroelectric project by the S.C. Public Service Authority, commonly known as "Santee Cooper" because of the two river systems the project connected.

At the present time these lakes hold a world record Channel Catfish (58 Ibs) and a Warmouth weighing 2.2 Ibs was caught in a creek a few miles from lake Marion.

These lakes held the record for Black Crappie (5 Ibs), Chain (Jack) (6.4 Ibs), Channel Catfish (58 Ib.), Arkansas Blue (109.4 Ibs) Lake Marion South Carolina Fishing Guide

The Santee Cooper Lakes vary from shallow swamps and blackwater ponds to vast open water with a multitude of underwater structures. Lake Marion was not completely cleared, as a result, fishermen will find there are thousands upon thousands of stumps, standing dead tree trunks and live cypress trees. Lake Moultrie is more open and is 14 miles across at its widest point. These lakes do not ice over during the winter and there is no closed season for fishing season. Weather permitting, fishermen can fish year round. Listed below is some information and seasonal tactics for fishing the waters of lakes Marion and Moultrie. Each section will begin with Spring, our prime season.Santee Cooper Fishing Guide
