Fly Fishing in Charleston

Consistently ranked as one of the best sportfishing cities in the world, Charleston, South Carolina ranks high on every angler’s bucket list. With its wealth of marches, inlets, and even some nearshore reefs to explore, there’s plenty to attract a range of exciting and delicious fish. For an extra challenge, why not come fly fishing in Charleston, SC? Get ready for plenty of action against some of the country’s strongest inshore fish, as you feel the thrill of landing a beast on the fly. 

What to Expect

Fly fishing involves plenty of skill and patience. That just means that the catch is even sweeter when you reel ‘em in! You’ll need plenty of space to fling the line into the water, so some charters may limit the capacity of the trip to make sure there’s room for all on board to fish. 
 
While fly fishing is seen as something for expert anglers, there’s always the chance that a professional guide will be happy to teach you the ropes. Everyone has to start somewhere – and where better than in these productive fishing grounds? Check with your captain if they’ll give you a helping hand and even beginners can join in on the fly fishing fun. 

What fish can I target?

There’s a reason that Charleston is renowned all over the world for its fishing, and that’s the fish. Some of the country’s strongest and most prized inshore fish inhabit the waters just out of downtown. Come aboard and hook plenty of beauties within minutes of leaving shore. 
 
Go after Bull Redfish, Speckled Trout, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Sharks, and even the “Silver King” – Tarpon, on what promises to be a thrilling day out. These beasts will do everything possible to get off the end of your line, adding extra spice to your Charleston fly fishing experience.
 
When to Go
The beauty of inshore fishing is that it’s red-hot year-round, with the waters remaining calm. Test your fly fishing skills whenever you want to land the catch of your dreams and something delicious to take home. The peak season for fly fishing comes in fall, as many of the bigger species make their way through the bay. Come from September through November for the best action. 

How to Prepare

Most fly anglers feel more comfortable with their own gear, and all Charleston fly fishing charters offer you the chance to bring your own equipment aboard. Some may provide you with gear, but not all, so if you’re a beginner, you should check with your captain to see if it’s included. 
 
Your fishing license is included on a South Carolina saltwater fishing charter, so that’s one less thing to worry about. All you need to take care of is your own food and drinks. Stock up with plenty to stay refreshed, whether you’re heading out for four, six, or eight hours.
 
Don’t miss out on your chance to make the most of this angling paradise. Come fly fishing in Charleston and experience the sport like never before!

Like all SC weather, it changes often. Be prepared to reschedule or to take a trip with conditions that are less favorable than you might want. If you do not get sick easily, take a chance and get your hook wet!

If catching fish is important and you have flexibility, book charters seeking red drum during low tide. If low tide is in the morning, book morning, and vice versa if low tide is in the afternoon…
