Fishing is one of the most popular wildlife related activities in the southeast and Thurmond Lake's 1200 miles of shoreline and 71,100 acres of water create an excellent playground for both the experienced and novice angular. Fish species include large mouth bass, bream, crappie, catfish, striped bass and hybrid bass. Numerous recreation areas, fishing piers, and bank fishing areas provide ample fishing opportunities. Fisheries habitat improvements include the maintenance of fish attractors and felling trees into water along the shoreline.
