    I'm looking at some property on the Black River in Williamsburg county not too far from Kingstree near Salters SC. Obviously, a prime question to ask is, How's the fishing there? Anybody done any fishing in this end of the Black? Catfishing, bream, anything? Thanks

    Steve, there's good fishing to be had up there, susceptible to rain or heavy dew upcountry making the river rise rapidly at times. :big_smile: Access is somewhat limited as far as public ramps, and the river along there is a designated "Scenic River". Very nice through there; lots of shallow, narrow areas and sandbars. Anything much bigger than a canoe or jon boat is pretty much useless. If you're looking at property with river access, it may be a good deal for you.
    I haven't fished up there in years, but there should be plenty of good fishing, especially for redbreast and bream; should also be plenty of catfish, but mostly what I've caught up that way is channels with a few flatheads thrown in. I'm sure there are some blues up that far, too.

    Steve I know that is some of the best duck hunting in the state there and it is one beatiful river. I went over it in andrews today and that sure is a nice looking river. I hope everything works out for you Steve.
