Saluda Lake – Greenville County

0

Saluda Lake is a 331 acre reservoir located in Greenville South Carolina.  It impounds the Saluda River on the border of Greenville and Pickens counties.  This lake provides the city of Easley in Pickens County a source of drinking water.  Saluda Lake is one of the very few small lakes in South Carolina to have a Bait & Tackle shop located on its shoreline. So, check out Saluda Lake Landing on your next visit.  The landing  is now open under new management with a boat ramp, boat rentals including fishing boats and kayaks, and a full menu of food.

The dredging operation is continuing.  The section being dredged is on the upper end of the lake where the river enters.   I saw a large area where they have dredged.   This area is still not accessible because the dredging operation has piled up a mud bank surrounding the entire dredged section.

Current Water Temp as of 3-24-12 is 68 – 73 degrees depeing upon your location on the lake.
