Broad River



About The River:

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.

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
