Lumber River near Mullins, South Carolina
Named for its use of rafting timber down to Georgetown, you won't find a whole lot of logs floating down the river anymore but you will find lots of nice fish. The river is best known for it's panfish which provide almost constant action to those fishing with beetle spins, popping bugs, or live bait. During the winter months the crappies provide good action. Fish the logjams and fallen trees with live bait or small beetle spins. The best bass fishing happens in April and May when the bass can be caught by throwing spinnerbaits and soft plastics into woody cover. In the summer they can be caught in the pad fields or near the bars on topwaters and soft plastics. Flatheads are the dominant catfish in the river. Try fishing for them day or night by casting live sunfish on bottom rigs near logjams and deep holes.
