Bass: Tournament angler Dearal Rodgers of Camden reports that in November Lake Wateree bass are usually following the bait, but this year there is the added complication of the beginning of a long drawdown. While water levels are still dropping fish are a little skittish and they are holding a little further out from the banks and suspending. Points are always good in November and will be even better this year, especially when there is some bait around. Shad-colored crankbaits, lipless crankbaits and spinnerbaits should all catch fish.Crappie: Veteran tournament angler Will Hinson of Cassatt reports that in November fish should get almost completely off of brush and become oriented to the schools of bait. Fish will gradually move up the lake and they should be caught on minnows and jigs.Catfish: Captain Rodger Taylor (803-517-7828) reports that with a mild October things are running a little behind, but this month fish should start to group up better around the deeper bait schools. Drifting is the best way to catch them.

Bass: FLW fisherman Dearal Rodgers of Camden reports that there appears to be a good population of bass on Lake Wateree right now, and this June he expects them to continue to be mixed between shallow and deep. Frogs, shakey heads and Carolina rigs will all catch fish. Crappie: Veteran tournament angler Will Hinson of Cassatt reports that fish will be on brush this month, where they can be caught on both minnows and jigs. As it gets hotter they will move deeper towards the river channel.
