Late summer fishing...

Fishing is big in South Carolina and some of the best freshwater fishing in the state is found at Lee State Park along the banks of the Lynches River or in the Artesian Lake. In the Lynches River, your catch may include sunfish, redbreast, catfish, and bass while the Artesian Lake is stocked with catfish. Keep in mind that fishing isn’t allowed in the swimming area at the Artesian Lake. Both the Artesian Lake and Lynches River inside Lee State Park require a valid South Carolina fishing license. If you find yourself at Lee State Park without fishing tackle and a desire to fish either the lake or the river, contact the park ranger to borrow a fishing rod as part of SC DNR’s Fishing Tackle Loaner Program. For more information visit Lee State Park isn’t just for fishing, and also offers camping, boating, bird watching, picnic shelters, and a park store with a gift sho.

Another great fishing spot is Lake Ashwood approximately 7 miles south of Bishopville on Highway 15. Recently reopened after some much-needed dam repairs, Lake Ashwood is a 73- acre public fishing lake stocked annually with blue and channel catfish, largemouth bass, sunfish, black crappie, bluegill bream, bowfin, chain pickerel, and shell-cracker. This is a wonderful place with a boat ramp, fishing pier, picnic area and is also handicap accessible. Open ½ hour before sunrise until ½ hour after sunset, fishing is allowed only with rods and reels or poles for fishermen or women ages 16 years and older. Daily fish limits apply so check out for more information.

Another aspect many enjoy at Lake Ashwood is the 2 miles of walking trails featuring the Carolina Wren, Northern Cardinal, and Blue Jay, and a number of Red-headed Woodpeckers. Fish or fowl, add Ashwood to your must-see fishing spots list if you haven’t had the pleasure to fish her waters or hike her trails. Visit for some good info on Ashwood trails.
