There is good news on the freshwater front. The Waccamaw River near Conway is below 10 feet and continues to recede. A few fishermen have returned to the river to target crappie and catfish. “They are getting out on the Waccamaw,” said Rick Woodward of Rick’s Bait and Tackle in Conway. “I’ve seen some nice crappie being caught and we’ve had some people going catfishing,” Woodward said.

Woodward looks forward to spring, and hopefully, lower water levels, which should produce excellent bream fishing. “I know this trying time will pay off in the long run,” said Woodward.

“There’s going to be some fat fish come spring time. They’ve been feeding, feeding, feeding. There will be some nice flatfish caught this spring. It’s just a matter of having patience for it.”
