Before emptying into the Atlantic, the Waccamaw, Black, Sampit, Pee Dee, and Santee Rivers flow through and around the city of Georgetown, SC. The deltas, marshes, and bar built estuaries formed by the river's flow and tidal currents, along with the jetties built for the towns industry, make Georgetown a hotbed for any type of South Carolina saltwater fish. North Inlet, Winyah Bay, and the Santee Delta, are all excellent fisheries allowing anglers to try many different styles of fishing. Tarpon, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, Black Drum, Sheepshead, Shark, and many other fish, are abundant in these areas during different times of the year.
Along with the incredible fishing, five different nature preserves and reserves surround Georgetown, SC, covering over 65,000 acres of protected coastal habitat and showcasing some of the most beautiful scenery in the Southeastern United States.
