Lake Jocassee

Completed by Duke Power Company in 1973, Lake Jocassee's 75 miles of shoreline and 7,565 acres of water have been a valuable source of energy and recreation in northwestern South Carolina. Jocassee is the only lake in South Carolina offering both trophy trout and smallmouth bass, and has become a favorite fishing spot for anglers throughout the Southeast. The deep, crystal clear water provides an excellent habitat for many species of fish, including brown trout, rainbow trout, white bass, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, bluegill and black crappie. Named "Place of the Lost One" because of the legend of the Indian maiden, Jocassee, who was said to have drowned herself in grief over the murder of her lover, this popular recreation area is surrounded by mountains and waterfalls. Located in Pickens and Oconee Counties.
