FISHING AT HUNTING ISLAND
Fishing in South Carolina is popular year-round for fresh water, large mouth, red-breast, and catfish. The salt-water species vary from trout, redfish and flounder inshore to marlin, dolphin, king mackerel, snapper, grouper and much more offshore and are specialties of Hunting Island State Park. Bring your gear and find serenity in the Lagoon or casting in the ocean. We have it covered.

Nature Center Pier: A portion of the pier is currently open; however, no fishing or crabbing is allowed at this time.
