Some Lowcountry places to find fall trout

If you locate a school of trout, you can easily catch multiple fish by casting a jighead dressed with a soft-plastic lure.

In the Port Royal Sound area, anglers generally choose the landing where SC 170 crosses the Chechessee River or the Broad River, depending on where they will fish. The Chechessee landing is convenient to the lower Chechessee, the Colleton River and the north shorelines of Rose and Daws Island. The Broad River landing is best for the upper Broad River spots.

The shoreline stretching from Boyd Creek down past the Hazzard Creek has expansive flats with numerous oyster out-croppings that are great for trout. Farther up the Broad are some shell banks by the Clarendon Plantation. On the north shore, above the bridge, are the Corn Island and the Habersham Point flats. Downriver from the bridge are the various creek mouths along the north shoreline and the Blue Coat edge above Archers Creek.

For St. Helena Sound areas, the Jenkins Creek Landing on Eddings Point Road in Frogmore, and the Sam’s Point landing on Lady’s Island allow quick access to Coosaw River spots. Just left from the Jenkins Creek Landing is a good trout shoreline. Also, check out the Morgan River shoreline across from the Dataw Island Marina. From the Sam’s Point landing, try the mouth of Fish Creek across the Coosaw. You can also run around to fish the north shoreline across from Pigeon Point in Beaufort.

From the Station Creek landing on St. Helena Island, there are good flats either side of where the Story River meets Trenchards Inlet.
