At nearly one million acres of watershed, the Santee River Basin supports a huge variety of fishing from the freshwater lakes and rivers to the salt flats within Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge. The flats fishing in Bulls Bay is characterized by 60 miles of uninhabited shoreline offering access to redfish, speckled trout, and flounder like no other location on the east coast. South Carolina also features one of the northernmost opportunities for a tarpon run each year. Lake Moultrie and Lake Marion are fabled for their striped bass; the SC state record for largemouth was set on Lake Marion in 1949.
Low country and coastal South Carolina is home to numerous world-class fishing destinations with saltwater and freshwater opportunities. Stay on the Middleburg property to access numerous reservoirs and the East Branch of the Cooper River. Head east into Francis Marion National Forest for numerous access points to the Santee River and its various tributaries interlacing the forest. Saltwater anglers will find endless opportunities to explore the Santee Coastal Reserve and Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge.
