My Keowee Fishing Trip - 11-12-11
By Danny Norwood - Owner
I went bass fishing to Lake Keowee Novemeber 12th and caught 3 lagemouth bass and one smallmouth bass. I caught all the three largmouth bass on a Carolina rigged plastic worm. The smallmouth bass was caught on a Carolina rigged plastic lizard. The smallmouth bass weighed about 2 pounds and fought extremely hard. All these fish were in about 20 foot of water near some rocky areas. The surface water temperature was 69 - 70 degrees, and the wind started blowing around 15 mph later in the day. This was my best fishing trip to Lake Keowee in quite a while. I believe November is the best chance to get in some more fishing before the cold winter sets in.

Lake Keowee - My Personal Recreational Paradise
By Danny Norwood - Owner of this website.
I just happen to live about 45 minutes from this beautiful lake known as Lake Keowee, and I can tell you it is one of my favorites. This is the lake I take my family to for swimming and boating. We take the boat, the grill, and plenty of food and spend a day here. We like to ride around in the boat and find a shaded beach area to spend the day. The perfect spots are located on the islands with white sandy beaches, shade trees, and shallow water. Sometimes we find spend the day on one of the islands near Warpath Landing.
When we have had enough fun on the beach area, we will get in the boat and just go riding. We really enjoy going to the waterfall in the back of one of the coves on the lake. Even though the land surrounding the waterfall is private property, you can anchor a boat in the shallow water here and go wading or swimming. In the Summer, the water in this area is cooler than the rest of the lake. Consequenty, this is a very popular spot on the lake and there are almost aways other boaters doing the same thing.
Finally, I know that my family and I will always cherish this wonderful lake with clear water with mountains in the background. I do not take this lake for granted, and thank Duke Energy for creating this fantastic resource for the residents and visitors of the great state of South Carolina.
