Santee Lakes Fishing Report

Santee Lakes Fishing Report

by Santee Lakes Staff

It was a good week for trout anglers. The weather is starting to cool down, which should get the trout to be a little more active in the coming weeks. Mike Panarisi (pictured top right) caught this nice trout on a night crawler out of Lake 4 on Tuesday afternoon. Bill Clarke (pictured top left) caught this impressive 6 lbs. 8 oz. trout out of Lake 4 as well. He caught it using Powerbait.

Don't forget to bring the kids out December 3rd for the annual Kiwanis Fishing Derby. Check in at the south side of Lake 4 and bring your own fishing gear.

Lake lowdown

Lakes 3 and 7 were stock on Friday this last week, however Lake 4 is still proving to be a hot spot for anglers. The hot bait this week looks to be the tried and true night crawler.

There have also been a few good sized bass caught this week by some diehard bass anglers. We will be closed on Thanksgiving (11/24/16) this year.
