Slow day on the Saluda Tailwater below Lake Murray Dam. Myself and a couple of my fishing pals floated the river on Saturday. Beautiful day, the fishing was fast but the catching was slow. I did manage to catch a nice fat 18" Rainbow. Still had a good time... and the weather was great.

Sorry I got my dates mixed up.....I was/am dying to float it and throw some streamers! Glad you guys at least had a couple of hook ups and that fat one landed.

Nubby...should be dumpin a load in the toilet in the next couple of weeks......you need to get an inflatable so you can float with us! :D

Looks like they have moved to 12/13 or 12/14 as the alternate date:

Trout to be stocked by helicopter in Lower Saluda River
http://www.dnr.sc.gov/news/yr2011/dec8/dec8_trout.html
DNR will stock thousands of rainbow and brown trout into the lower Saluda River near Columbia on Dec. 13 using a helicopter and a specialized lift bucket. The stocking is expected to commence around 9:30 a.m. just off Corley Mill Road (Frye Road) near I-20 at US 378 west of Columbia in Lexington County.

With thousands being stocked, Overbrook might even catch one if he gets there early.
