Cooper Lake is a 19,000-acre impoundment with excellent fishing for largemouth bass, catfish, white and hybrid striped bass and crappie. Standing timber, brush piles, islands and fencerows provide structure for largemouth bass and crappie...
The striper fishing on the upper end of Lake Marion is good in the river on the flats as well as in the lower end of the lake and on Lake Moultrie. Herring has been the bait of choice for most anglers, with shad also producing some action as well.
