Myrtle Beach Fly Fishing

Myrtle beach is a destination for families from all over the United States. Many come for the beach and shopping but unknown to some is the great fishing within a short drive from Myrtle beach. Several marshes are located on the grand strand. Little River Inlet, Murrels Inlet, and Pawleys Island Inlet are among the more well known. These are small estuaries that are often very over crowded and have little to no opportunity for fly anglers. The truly great fishing in our are likes 30 to 45 minutes south of Myrtle Beach. For fly angler the main points of interest are North Inlet and Cape Romain. These are very large estuaries with tons of fly water. 

North Inlet is located on the north side of Winyah Bay. North Inlet is reached by launching at The historic seaport of Georgetown and running across the bay to the creeks and flats of North Inlet. This is a beautiful area with a lot of life.  

My favorite place and the are that I do 90% of my fishing is Cape Romain. Cape Romain is a massive marsh with endless creeks, bays, and flats. Cape Romain is the most remote marsh in our area and has very little pressure. To me the extra drive to get here is well worth it. Cape Romain is reached by launching at Buck Hall boat landing or the town of Mcclellanville. I launch at different places depending on the time of year.

Wherever you choose to fish you will have a gret time on the water.
