Fall has always been one of my favorite times of year on the water because there is less traffic due to hunting and football, and of course the colors that begin to cover the landscape make the trip even more scenic. Oh, did I mention that the river bass bite really picks up that time of year as well? In this video Bruiser and I get a taste of every aspect that makes Fall so great in my book and catch some nice fish on my favorite smallmouth, spot and shoal bass spinnerbait – the “mini me” by SOB Lures.

About the river: Stevens Creek, a tributary of the Savannah River, winds its way slowly through the counties of Edgefield and McCormick, SC. The landscape of the river changes vastly over its length from deep gorge like settings to rocky shoals and even lined by cypress trees in some areas. The floatable sections of the creek really begin below the confluence of Steven’s and Turkey creek, and end in a vast stumpfield as the waters combine with the Savannah River as it continues its course into North Augusta.

When you can actually get on flowing sections of this river, that are true river and not lake, they can be pretty productive. The problem is the river system creates so many lakes that it has more lake shoreline than river on its way to the ocean. If man had not disturbed much of the true river by creating lakes, this may have been one of the most scenic rivers in the country coming out of the mountains and into the piedmont. Even though it is a big river, it is one of the most used water systems in the country and therefore runs lower than ever these days. You may find yourself scraping the bottom in many shoal areas, especially during the summer. However, the good news is that there are still bass living in the river! Read the full story
The Broad River begins way up in western North Carolina and tumbles its way all the way down to the capital city of Columbia, SC, where it joins with the Saluda to form the Congaree. Along its route to Columbia, it is dammed up several times, although never into a big impoundment. These small dams are there more to produce power than to make recreational lake opportunities. At times I despise dams on rivers, but the truth is that if they were not there much of the Broad could be completely silted in and we may not have the fishery we do today. Finding access to the Broad can be difficult, and the numerous shoals make it a challenge for motor boats. This is a good thing if you are a kayak or canoe fisherman. Read the full story
Since I moved to Greenwood, SC., I have begun the fun and exhausting task of exploring all of my new home waters. Sometimes I run into a stretch of river that seems lifeless, but other times I find a great piece of water where life abounds. The Saluda river, both above and below Lake Greenwood, seems to be a can’t miss for bass no matter what section you are on.
Above the lake, you will encounter two types of black bass – largemouth and redeye bass. The largemouth will generally hang out in the slower sections, while the redeyes inhabit the swift and rocky shoals. Read the full story
