Hey Fisherman! Love to FISH??
When you browse through the pictures of Chigoe Creek Retreat, you might imagine a family coming to spend a week by the pool, a couple celebrating their anniversary with a romantic getaway, a family reunion with a cookout on the back lawn, rugged outdoor fishermen. Whoa, FISHERMEN??? Yep you heard me, outdoor loving, worm dunkers! Chigoe Creek Retreat is a great choice for men and women that love to fish, let me tell you why…We are located minutes to Clarks Hill Lake which stretched between the border of Georgia and South Carolina. At 71,000 acres, it is the third-largest artificial lake east of the Mississippi River and one of the Southeast’s largest and most popular public recreation lakes. According to the GeorgiaWildlife.com your best bet for fish at Clarks Hill are largemouth bass, redear sunfish, crappie, stripers, hybrids and catfish but there are many other types of fish too. This lake sponsors numerous fishing tournaments throughout the year including many national tournaments held in Columbia County’s Wildwood Park sponsored by ESPN Bassmasters, American Bass Anglers, FLW, BFL, and Georgia Bass Federation. Fishing on Clarks Hill Lake is excellent year round and our staff is happy to set plan a guided fishing tour with one of many local fishing guides. They know the secret spots on the lake and the best bait to catch the fish you are hunting. Then for the true fishing fanatic when you are done with your guided fishing tour, you can cast your reel into our 4 acre stocked pond until you can’t fish anymore and then you can relax in one of our large plush beds, large soaking tub or multi jetted shower. There aren’t any hotels this close to the lake and Wildwood Park, where many fishing tournaments happen through. Chigoe Creek Retreat is a fisherman’s paradise!
