Lake Strom Thurmond Fishing

Lake J. Strom Thurmond, also known as Clarks Hill Lake, is nationally recognized for its excellent supply of striped bass and largemouth bass. This 71,000-acre lake offers anglers 1,200 acres of shoreline to explore – though only 800 miles of it is in South Carolina. The rest of the shoreline lies in Georgia. In addition to bass, this lake is full of stripers, catfish, crappie, bluegill, sunfish, and chain pickerel. The lake has approximately 20 boat launch ramps to help you get out on the water. You can also rent pontoon boats, fishing boats and family boats at one of the lake’s marinas. Since most of the shoreline is only accessible by boat, shore fishing isn’t recommended. But, if you really want to fish from the banks, you can find some access points at the locals campgrounds and parks. Lake J. Strom Thurmond is a great place to spend the weekend with many options for lodging, dining, shopping, and camping.
