Go to the other side of the River from Columbia, find the West Columbia/Cayce Riverwalk and profit.

It's approx. 3 miles long and there are many places to fish along the trail. Look for small foot trails towards the river and you'll find the fishing spots. The more secluded the better.

Probably not close enough, but Lake Murray is great for rock fish..ive caught some really big striper out there as well as a boat load (literally) of catfish.

Default Re: Fishing

A lot of Murray is lined with houses. If you park on the Irmo side of the dam and walk down the actual dam itself (on the rocks) I've heard of people catching Striper there. If you drive to the Lexington side of the dam, you can go in Lake World and just ask them what's up. Gonna be hard without a boat I'd imagine though.

Most public access is limited to landings (not usually the best for fishing other than bream). To get to some public lake shore, you'd have to go to Billy Dreher Island I'd guess. Which is about what, 35-40 minutes from downtown. And I don't have much to offer by way of a 'good spot' from the shore there.

Hmmm. That's unfortunate. Hate to hear it...

You could the James R. Metts landing off Corley Mill Rd.

Take I-126 to I-20W to 378. Take a right off the ramp, and first right off of 378 onto Corley Mill Road.

Approx 2-3 miles down Corley Mill look for a "Sheriff James R. Metts Landing" Sign. First right after the sign onto Hope Ferry Road will take you to the Saluda River. Can fish off the right side boat launch, there are a few trails on either side to get off the high traffic of the boat launch.

That'd be where I'd recommend going next where I know they won't run you off.

You'll get some trout and rock fish up there.

Maybe Saluda Shoals Park? It sits just below the dam.

I may sound crazy, but I'd be afraid to eat fish out of the Broad, Saluda, or Congaree at downtown Columbia. Columbia dumps some nasty crap.

You fish at the river both days? I've never had any luck there the handful of times I've been. I've seen plenty others fishing, and my friend one time, saw a guy carrying a large fish back to his car.
