- Catfish: Very good. water temperatures are cold enough to put fish in winter locations, but warm enough for a hot bite. Blues, channels and white catfish seem to be feeding best in 40-80 feet of water, and they are orienting to ledges along the main river channel or deeper creek channels. Drifting cut herring, gizzard and threadfin shad is the best technique, and anglers should drift along the ledges or crisscross the channel multiple times on a drift. On warmer days fish may move up shallower in the late afternoon.
- Striped Bass: Good. Lake World reports that fish are in a typical early spring pattern and they are spread out all over the lake. The best fish will be caught on free lined live herring pulled across shallow areas, and fish can be caught from the rivers to the dam area. Look for the birds to locate bait and fish.
- Shellcracker: Good. Lake World reports that the shellcracker bite has gotten hot in 2-8 feet of water using worms.
- Crappie: Fair to good. there are two major patterns for catching crappie right now. One is a traditional winter tight-lining pattern up the Big and Little Saluda Rivers, pulling minnows and jigs 8-12 feet deep in 15-20 feet of water. The other pattern is fishing around bridges and deeper docks with jigs. For this pattern fish from the bottom to the top to locate the depth where crappie are feeding.
- Largemouth Bass: Fair. even though everything is a few weeks ahead of schedule fish are still almost totally keyed on bait. The best fish are being caught on crankbaits fished around deep rocky points, but smaller fish can be caught running warm pockets with drains and ditches and casting small crankbaits. There is also a decent jerkbait bite early, but it’s been difficult to catch a good sack fishing worms on the bottom. A few fish are holding around docks at the mouths of creeks, but that bite should improve soon. Right now it is rare to catch fish in the very backs of creeks as fish are still closer to deep water.

Lexington South Carolina Schools
The Lexington One Board of Trustees on Tuesday night approved new school attendance zones to accommodate the construction of two new schools set to open over the next couple of years. The attendance zones for the new Meadow Glen Middle and River Bluff High schools will alter the attendance lines of Lexington Middle School, Pleasant Hill Middle School and Lexington High School. View the proposed attendance zone maps here and here.
The new schools will help ease the explosive growth and crowding in the district’s schools. For example, Lexington High School, one of the largest in the state, currently has 3,120 students. That population will be reduced to 1,741 once River Bluff High opens in 2013.
In its unanimous vote, the board also approved a grandfathering clause that will allow current seventh-graders and 10th-graders stay at their current schools, so long as they provide for their own transportation to and from school.
Under the middle school realignment, Pleasant Hill Elementary, Rocky Creek Elementary and part of Lake Murray Elementary schools would feed to Pleasant Hill Middle School.
Lexington Elementary, New Providence Elementary and part of Lake Murray Elementary School would feed to Lexington Middle School.
Midway Elementary, Meadow Glen Elementary and part of the Oak Grove Elementary currently attending Lexington Middle School would feed to Meadow Glen Middle School. The part of Oak Grove Elementary currently feeding to White Knoll Middle School would continue to feed to White Knoll Middle School.
Meantime, in the high school realignment, Pleasant Hill Elementary, Rocky Creek Elementary, Lake Murray Elementary School and part of New Providence Elementary would feed Lexington High School.
The other part of New Providence Elementary, Midway Elementary, Meadow Glen Elementary and the part of Oak Grove Elementary currently feeding to Lexington Middle School would feed to River Bluff High School. The part of Oak Grove Elementary currently feeding to White Knoll High School would continue to feed to White Knoll High School.
Meadow Glen Middle School, set to open in 2012, is located at 510 Ginny Lane. It will have classroom space for 1,000 students and will open in the fall of 2012. Bill Coon will serve as principal.
River Bluff High School, set to open in 2013, is under construction on Corley Mill Road. The district’s newest high school will have classroom space for 2,000 students, a competition gymnasium and mini-gymnasium, auditorium and stadium. Luke Clamp will be principal.
“I’ve probably been through 12 or 13 rezonings already,” said board member Bert Dooley, Jr., who added that this rezoning likely won’t be the last in the fast-growing district. “Unless your back porch touches school property, you’re likely to be rezoned at some point.”
Lexington South Carolina is a growing community on the move with some of the States best school system review’s. Its a great place to settle down and grow your family. Exit Real Estate and Chip Jefferson can help find that dream home and guide you to our local community. Call me (Chip) if you have any questions.

Friday, August 28. Remember the Titans. To get everyone geared up for football season, we’re going to show Remember the Titans at Screen on the Green! Remember the Titans is based on the true story of the explosive events that took place in Alexandria, Virginia in 1971 when African-American football coach Herman Boone was hired to guide an integrated but racially polarized high school team–the T.C. Williams Titans. Angry, stubborn and a rigid taskmaster, Boone faces a cool reception from the team’s players as well as an awkward relationship with assistant coach Bill Yoast, a local white man with seniority and a tradition of winning who was bypassed for the job. It’s made clear that Bill has feelings of animosity for having to be an assistant under a black man. As the two men learn to overcome their ignorance and bigotry and realize that they have much in common–integrity, honor, and a strong work ethic–they work together to transform a group of angry, unfocused players into a dynamic winning team of responsible young men. In the process, they also unite a divided community and ensure that Virginia will always “Remember the Titans.” The movie is 1 hour and 53 minutes long and will begin at dusk, weather permitting.
