Fly Fishing in South Carolina

South Carolina’s fly fishing scene is gaining popularity – and for good reason too. Not only does the state boast hundreds of miles of freshwater streams and lakes suitable for tackling fish on the fly, but anglers are now starting to discover the riches of the inshore bays and flats too. Come fly fishing in South Carolina and you could do it all!
 
The aforementioned streams are home to some of the best Trout action in the south. Brown, Brook, and Rainbow Trout all call the northern rivers home, giving you plenty of species to target. Hit the lakes in the centre of the state, and it’s all about Bass. Striped Bass gain the crown for most sought-after fish on the fly, but Largemouth and Smallmouth varieties are also available.
 
When it comes to saltwater, Redfish takes centre stage. These feisty creatures are pretty much synonymous with fly fishing in southern SC. But that’s not all. Spotted Seatrout often swim alongside Reds, while Tarpon come through in summer. Add to that the spring Cobia run, and you’ve got a world-class fishery. 
 
With such a range of fishing grounds and species comes a range of options for anglers. Beginners can make use of half day trips to learn the ropes. Meanwhile, those of you with some more experience can take advantage of full day voyages or even longer adventures to really get to grips with everything South Carolina has to offer.
 
Hit the Chattooga, Saluda, and Chauga Rivers for a back-to-basics fly fishing trip, where Trout is the name of the game. You can also find these prized creatures in Lake Jocassee. Other lakes such as the Santee Cooper reservoirs and Lake Murray are prime Bass-hunting grounds. Meanwhile, the best saltwater action comes in and around Charleston and Georgetown.

If fishing inshore or nearshore, bring bug repellant as the gnats can be a bit much to deal with.

February: fish during low tide, make sure to listen to the captain’s recommendations on technique. We fished on a sunny day. Was cool and windy but not cold so dress accordingly

Weather is a little unpredictable in February but this has to be expected. You have to be open minded to the fact that the fish may not necessarily be in abundance of catching. But that is pretty normal in a sport like this considering the weather/temperature this time of year! I would still recommend it though, because why not? Especially if you want to enjoy the time on a boat and doing something you love.

Definitely dress appropriately! It was 65 degrees the day we went out and if I hadn’t had a windbreaker I woulda froze lol. You WILL catch fish! Fishing is fishing though and you may or may not catch fish right away! The scenery alone is worth going on a trip in my opinion. The fishing was more of a fast paced style fishing. Like crappie or bass fishing.

Base your expectations on the season. We targeted red drum and sheepshead because that's what we knew we'd be able to catch at the end of January early February and that's exactly what we caught. In abundance!

I suppose it's the same any month - you are somewhat at the mercy of the weather and the tides. Had we fished during a different period that day, our catch might have been much different. We had fun and made memories for a lifetime. That's a good day in my book.

Be patient. I had doubts about catching anything due to the weather, very windy. Sometimes nothing can be caught. Lucky we hit a couple. Not the charter boat captains fault if nothing is biting!
