Lake Lowdown
Average Water Temperature: 68.3°F
Water Clarity: 4 Feet

The bass have been biting on a mixture of soft and hard baits recently. Popular baits include topwater wake baits such as the PB Rat and soft plastics such as texas-rigged senkos or drop-shot roboworms. Popular spots include the east shore of Lake 1 casting towards the island and the west shore of Lake 3. The catfish bite has remained consistent with many reports of fish being caught on shrimp. Popular spots include the island on Lake 4 and the south shore of Lake 3. Our next scheduled stock will take place on Friday, May 14. A portion of the lakes will be closed in order to give the fish time to acclimate.

Recently at Santee Lakes we have noticed an increase in the amount of discarded fishing line scattered throughout the park. The picture above is what was collected over a span of two hours across four out of the seven lakes that many species call home. We can all do our part to be sure that the wildlife we enjoy around our lakes do not have to suffer from our carelessness. Fishing line is such a danger to wildlife, we should never discard it on the ground. If you see any left by others, please pick it up. Three new line receptacles have been installed throughout the Lakes to give guests more opportunities to properly dispose of fishing line.
