I found some good info on one of our area parks. I have attended a seminar there but never wet a line. Looks like a nice place for a family outing or to drop a hook if you dont have a boat!

Yeah, River Park North isnt a bad deal. I have been there a few times. There is another place in Greenville that you can become a fishing member to a few private ponds on Sean Drive. It costs $30 per year and not many people fish back there. There is also River Park West, but you will need a 4x4 to go there. All these are good fishing.

I can help you out with a few new spots to fish... but this GAFF meeting sounds like something we all need to attend. And if i am not mistaken, its Legion Street that takes you to River Park West. Its a good way back in there and the road is very rough.. either take a vehicle with high ground clearance or a mountain bike. Also there are ponds everywhere in the area. Eastern Pines Rd has Lake Glenwood. Lake Elsworth is on Dickenson Ave out near Starhill Farms. I know of others.. you will just have to contact me once you check these out.

Speaking of boatless.. here is a place someone can get information on building a small, one man boat suitable for ponds or creeks. I built one just to see if it really works. I would change the plan up a bit to suit yourself, but not a bad cheap project to have a small boat as the end result. I also leave myself out as a source of info for someone who may need help. Just try this link.. a world of information... mouseboats : Mouse Boats

I've noticed quite a few neat little plans on the Internet for skiff and creekboats lately. Looks like an inexpensive and fun project for sure!!! I've thought about building something I could tow behind my bigger boat then pole or troll into the creeks and backwaters with for Reds etc.

Well, I know for sure now that it will work.. I have had mine in the water more than 10 times.. not one leak.. HOWEVER, i would go for a flat bottom if you want to fish out of it.. the plan that they came up with is fast to paddle since it is a modified vhull but for sitting still, it moves too much. Like I said anyone can do it.. Just use the basic plan and your imagination.

@ ecuguy, RPN actually does have quite a few bass, including some hogs. ive caught 5-7 lbrs out of there before.

also if you take a 10 min drive to grimesland the state ponds out there have some huge chubs. my best bass have come from this area, incuding 5 over 8 lbs one day. atm, they arent biting, but look for it to pick up. more people fish for white perch and crappie however, also not biting atm.

you wont't get run off, i go there all the time and have had no trouble...

in fact the guy running the bait shop halfway there is the one that told me about the place. from what i hear, the signs are up so the state won't be considered liable for any accident that may occur while one is on the ponds.

every so often the state workers are digging in a pond or two but never both sides of the road simultaneously...i just tend to avoid where they are working if it happens i run up with them, and try not to block any gates etc. with your vehicle.

many times you ride by there will be a couple vehicles parked on the roadside already, one probably mine :D


yesterday the far banks were so muddy there was a distinct mudline and the baitfish were getting torn up alonge the line. i caught two on a red shad worm in about 1 hr. also some type of huge fish with either a soft or extremely hard mouth bit my trap twice and peeled off drag that a 10 lb bass couldnt do...they were rolling the surface all over.

good luck

@ handyhands, appreciate the info on spots to fish, lake elsworth is pretty much a waste of time for my type fishing, but i just found west meadowbrook park off legion street, and man there is a lot of water there...will be checking it out in a couple hours with a friend.


anyone have any info on redbank landing?? if/how/where fish the pond? its the one on the left as you cross the river on greenville blvd heading toward North Campus. JW i've seen a few vehicles driving the far bank and some park off Gville Blvd. and cross the gate to fish. thanks
