    For all of you living in the Upstate, what are the rivers doing up there? I haven't heard anything lately about the Reedy and Upper Saluda. Are they coming up any? I talked to crclhuk1 last night and he and I might be fishing the Upper Saluda somewhere between Belton and Ware Shoals next weekend.

    The only thing I've been watching lately is Lake Greenwood and there's no good news for it. The rangers in the state park are closing ramps off and I know there's a couple more closed on other parts of the lake, thanks to no rain and the DNR.

    Sorry if I missed something, but how is the DNR responsible for low water levels?

    I guess I worded that one funny.....The DNR's NOT responsible for low water levels, but they ARE responsible for closing boat ramps.

    Oh - I see what you mean. Unfortunately, if they didn't some yahoo would try to use a ramp and hurt himself or wreck his rig and then try to blame the state for his own screw up.

    I hope Hanna dumps some rain far enough inland to do our lakes and rivers some good.

    I'm sorry if I offended anyone, but I was NOT making fun of anyone. I talk to the guys over on the GA boards too. We all have a big laugh sometimes. I know when they're kidding me....They know when I'm kidding with them. If they don't like it, then they need to tell me. And since you've put the ball in my court, I'm gonna make the play and ENJOY my time here. Whether or not people enjoy my company and/or suggestions is up to them. Never again will I try to cut up with anybody or share a laugh. It's serious catfishing discussion from here on out.

    well matt,as you know gwood is pretty low.it did come up a little due to the recent rain but the rivers have gone back down now since we havent had any more rain.if you are gonna fish the waters around belton i would be pretty sure there are plenty of rocks showing.i live between reedy and saluda up by travelers rest and theres hardly any water up here.matter of fact the reedy is the back side of my property and the saluda is maby 2 miles the other way.beeee carefull

    Matt: It WAS humorous, and the guy WAS a yahoo! Notice I didn't say it was funny, 'cause it wasn't, but humorous, it WAS! See my reply on the Ga. thread.

    Jerry, I knew there was something I liked about you! I grew up around the Travelers Rest/Berea area. Spent some time as a young'un on Jocassee. Let me say, "What's up there, home slice!" Good to hear from you and it's good to have as a BOC brother!
