Fishing - Elijah Clark State Park

Elijah Clark Logo

Clarks Hill Lake has a large variety of species that include largemouth, hybrid and striped bass, black crappie, white and yellow perch, chain pickerel, bluegill, shellcrackers, and channel, blue and flathead catfish. The best access to the lake is by boat. Shore-bound anglers also have good access, particularly those staying in the campgrounds or cabins. Areas of note are the cove between campgrounds 1 and 2, the long point with fishing pier on which shelter 3 is located, and east of the fishing pier past the boat ramp. The cove running back toward the park’s amphitheater can be a hotspot for bass and bream. A fish attractor is anchored roughly 100 yards in front of the pier. (Information provided by
