Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Savannah River

According to customer reviews, Electric City Fishing Charters, Fishing With Mike Harter, and Bent Rods Charter Company are some of the most popular fishing charters in Savannah River. Full list of top fishing charters in Savannah River.

Fishing With Mike Harter and Bent Rods Charter Company received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Savannah River.

The most popular fish species you can target are Striped Bass, Hybrid Striped Bass, and Spotted Bass. Top fishing techniques include Light Tackle, Trolling, and Bottom Fishing. Lake fishing, river fishing, and backcountry fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

The Savannah River forms most of the border between South Carolina and Georgia and is an important US waterway. Aside from supplying drinking water to major cities on its route, it supports a large variety of fish species. Anglers embarking on a Savannah River fishing adventure will encounter all the freshwater fish they could dream of, as well as a few saltwater favorites!

In the upper and middle sections of the river, you’ll hook into freshwater species including Brook, Brown, and Rainbow Trout, as well as Yellow Perch and Crappie. And of course, there’s a variety of Bass, including Largemouth, Smallmouth, Spotted, and Striped, making for great topwater action.

As you make your way down to the lower section of the river, which is much more like an estuary, you’ll add certain saltwater fish to your list. Redfish, Flounder, Speckled Trout, Alligator Gar, and even Sturgeon make appearances in fishing towns beyond Savannah.

How much time you spend on the water depends primarily on what you plan to target. If you’re a beginner or just hoping to go home with a few tasty fish in the cooler, a half day trip does the trick. More experienced anglers looking to do battle with Striped and Hybrid Bass or hook their limits of Trout would benefit from a full day on the water.

The Savannah River’s source is at Lake Hartwell. From there, it meanders south for just over 300 miles before emptying out into the Atlantic Ocean. The two largest cities on its route are Augusta and Savannah, and you’ll find plenty of charter captains here and in smaller towns along the way.

Rules & Regulations

Georgia and South Carolina’s reciprocal fishing agreement allows you to fish the border waters of the Savannah River System, regardless of which state’s fishing license you hold. That said, all anglers over the age of 16 will need to purchase one before heading out.

January

One of the best things about fishing in winter is Crappie! You’ll find schools of these fish in the upper and middle sections of the river.

February

What other fish loves colder waters? Bass, of course! If you’re hoping to battle it out with a Striper or land a record-breaking Spotted Bass, February is your month. 

March

Bass continue to reign supreme as we move into March. You’ll find Hybrid and Striped Bass making runs up the river to feed.

April

Yep, Bass is in the cards in April too. This is the best time of year to hook into Largemouth Bass in the Savannah River and you’ll also have a shot at tasty Rainbow Trout.

May

Bluegill, Catfish, and Largemouth Bass are up for grabs as we settle into spring. The large number of bait fish in the river sets fishing on fire!

June

It’s your best month to hook into what some argue is the most delicious of its kind – Brook Trout! Give yourself a little extra time on the water, catching this fish requires skill and patience.

July

It’s summertime, and boy can you feel it! Head out early to beat the heat while you fish for massive Catfish. In the upper sections of the river, anglers are still battling it out with Largemouth Bass.

August

It’s hot and most of the river’s fish are seeking cooler waters. The deeper the water, the more likely you are to come across a variety of Bass. Alternatively, head out in search of Tarpon where the river empties into the Atlantic. 

September

Early fall can be one of the best times on the river! The waters are cooling and the crowds are gone, meaning you’ll have all the Spotted Bass and Catfish to yourself.

October

Speckled Trout and Redfish start to move into the lower sections of the river, as they seek out shallower waters. Further north, you can try for Largemouth Bass and Catfish.

November

If you’re hoping to snag some of those saltwater fish, this is your best chance. Speckled Trout and Redfish make moves in the lower sections of the river.

December

December might as well be called “Bass month.” Striped, Hybrid, Largemouth, and Smallmouth are all available in different sections of the river and the surrounding waterways.

Mike was extremely knowledgeable, engaging, and accommodating. We had six adults - two skilled, four of varying degrees - and he was great with everyone. He went to the trouble to provide live bait as well as lures and worked to make it a great experience. Our catches weren’t epic, but that’s what storytelling is for LOL. Thanks Mike!

Bro I’m telling you, my new friend Chris will put you on ‘em. I moved to Lake Hartwell a few months ago. I needed a good guide for my brother and his twin boys and put us on ‘em! On another trip my daughter went from I’m not touching fish to her cradling big Striper. This is your guy.

Went out on two boats with Chris and David with a group of 7. Most of us were newbies and were happy to find out that they did all the work - putting the bait on, netting the fish, etc. Chris was well-organized, super-chill and did a great job finding the fish. Everyone had a great time. Thanks again!

Captain Tim knew exactly where to find the fish and provided helpful tips for techniques for bringing in the catch. His enthusiasm with each catch was contagious. I would recommend booking with captain Tim. As a side line his photography skills are pretty good when looking to capture your trip memory.

My wife and I went out with Captain Wyatt and had a blast. Within 3 hours we had limited out and had a cooler full of fish. His personality and expertise allow you to enjoy the trip whether your a first time fisherman or an experienced angler. I highly recommend him (just not on days I want to rebook with him)!
