Brad Gill | March 9, 2015

Ed Lepley caught a 3-lb., 9-oz. white bass on March 9, 2015 at Clarks Hill Lake. The fish set a new lake record for Clarks Hill.

Clarks Hill Lake is a reservoir at the border between Georgia and South Carolina in the Savannah River Basin. It was created by the J. Strom Thurmond Dam during 1951 and 1952 by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers near the confluence of the Little River and the Savannah River. It is the third-largest artificial lake east of the Mississippi River, behind Kentucky Lake on the Tennessee River and Lake Marion on the Santee River. The J. Strom Thurmond Dam is located upstream from Augusta. Clarks Hill is one of the Southeast’s largest and most popular public recreation lakes.
