Fishing in South Carolina Upcountry

Andrew Pickens Ranger District

The Andrew Pickens Ranger District in the northwest corner of the state is best known for the Chattooga Wild and Scenic River. in addition to floating the Chattooga, you can fish for Rainbow and Brown Trout, and Redeye Bass. For Trout, you'll have the best success above highway 28 Bridge. For a real unique fishing experience, try fishing the Chattooga inside the Ellicott Rock Wilderness.

The Chauga Scenic River is also popular with anglers. Good access and parking are available adjacent to Cassidy Bridge on Highway 290. Trout can be caught in many of the smaller streams. Other species of choice include Largemouth Bass, Redeye Bass, Bluegill, Catfish, usually found in the warmer waters of both rivers.

Presbyterian Lake is a 4-acre pond managed for Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, and Shellcrackers. it is located on FS Road 2377, off the road to the Cedar Rifle Range.
