PHOTOS BY Chris Sokoloski/South Strand News Charles Covington of SCDNR turns on the waterflow to release largemouth bass at Hagley Landing.


The S.C. Department of Natural Resources released 50,000 largemouth bass into the Waccamaw River last week.

The fish were produced at the Cheraw Fish Hatchery and transported in a specially equipped fish-hauling truck to Hagley Landing.

Most of the bass were released at the dock, but some were taken by boat and released farther out in the river.

The DNR Freshwater Fisheries Section annually stocks from seven to 10 million fish in state waters, including striped and hybrid bass, largemouth and smallmouth bass, channel and blue catfish, bluegill, redbreast, redear sunfish (shellcracker), and rainbow, brook, and brown trout.
