J. Strom Thurmond Lake (GA / SC Border) Professional Review and Guide

"Although J. Strom Thurmond Lake has occasionally suffered through an identity crisis due to both name changes as well as incorrect spelling—originally named Clark Hill, often spelled Clarks Hill (the name of a town at the dam), and then given a federal name change to J. Strom Thurmond Lake to honor the South Carolina Senator—the lake’s fishing has had no such problems.

The 70,000-acre Savannah River impoundment has been known for both its largemouth and hybrid striped bass fishing for many years, and the largemouth fishing has actually improved due to the spread of aquatic vegetation like hydrilla and elodea. The lake is the largest Corps of Engineers project east of the Mississippi River and one of the 10 most visited Corps lakes in the nation. The rolling countryside also contributes to the lake’s appearance, for impoundment-filled long, winding valleys and covered small hilltops have resulted in literally thousands of wooded points, coves, and small islands throughout the length of the lake. Primary Species: Largemouth and hybrid striped bass."
