    What you need to know about fishing Lake Murray

    Lake Murray is located in the center of South Carolina and has become one of the states most popular vacation destinations. This is likely due to the clean water it holds and its location. Although it has been getting a considerable amount of pressure, Murray continues to be a great fishery. These waters are home to Crappie, Bluegill, Striped Bass, and Largemouth Bass. Largemouth bass are the most popular fish to target on Murray, however they are not an easy fish to catch. In the Saluda River portion of the lake, bass tend to chase the blueback herring. This is an incredibly difficult way of fishing as the herring roam the open water and can disappear from day to day. Tracking them down is quite the challenge. Many anglers find more success on the main lake side due to the fact that fish behave in a much more patterned manner and can be caught in creek arms chasing shad, or on points feeding. The crappies and bluegills in Murray Lake are commonly caught on brush piles off of main lake points and flats.
