Fishing…It’s here!


Fishing for trophy bass…it’s here (and a lot more). Clarks Hill Lake is the site of several national class fishing tournaments, but the casual angler will get a fair share of fish. Columbia County supports the pastime through numerous boat ramps, boat rentals, bait & tackle vendors, and fishing guides.
