Fishing

Cast A Line at Santee Lakes!

Our 7 lakes are regularly stocked with catfish and Rainbow trout on a seasonal basis. Bass and bluegill are also prevalent in the Lakes. Lakes 1 through 5 are for day use fishing, while Lakes 6 through 7 are for registered campground guests.

No State fishing license required; a fishing permit from the General Store is all you need! We also have fishing events throughout the year including night fishing.
