Ponds located on the golf courses (Golf Course Ponds 1, 2, 3, and Catfish) are available for night-time fishing when the golf course is closed to golfers. Golf course ponds 1 & 2 are also open for day-time fishing, but anglers may only fish from the dams and north shoreline of these two ponds. Vehicles shall not be driven on the golf course. You must walk to these ponds.
NOTICE: Due to construction, Lower Legion Lake and the dam of upper Legion Lake are closed to fishermen until further notice. Do not enter the construction zone.
Clarks Pond is now open for fishing. This pond was restocked with fingerling bass, bream, and channel catfish in 2017, and was closed to fishing until 1 June 2018. The bass are currently small in size, so we encourage anglers to return any bass caught in Clark's pond this year.
Anglers, you can help us improve the fishing in Fort Jackson's ponds by reporting what fish you catch and release or keep. Please complete the survey accurately during the check-out process. This information is used to make more-informed decisions related to the management of the ponds.
Attention Cyclist and Runners- four new Range-Area cycling/running routes have been established, and are now available for check-in. Please remember to check-out after completing your ride or run. Also, please keep your mobile phone with you, so that you may receive important text messages from iSportsman.
Deer Stands - since last deer season, many of the permanant deer stands have been moved to new locations. In addition, there have been a number of new stands placed in hunting areas. As a result of these changes, approximately 40 deer stands have been re-numbered. Some of the stands may be in the same location as last year, but now have a new number. Please reference the updated hunting map prior to checking-in to a deer stand.
Hunt Area Boundaries - in addition to deer stand changes, many of the hunt area boundaries were changed in July 2018. The revised Deer Hunting Map accurately reflects the recent changes to the training area boundaries found on the official Fort Jackson Military Installation Map. Please reference the updated hunting map prior to checking in to scout or hunt. The updated maps are located under Maps/Reference Maps on the iSportsman home page.
Area Closure Map - the iSportsman Area Closure Map (interactive map) has not yet been updated with new deer stand locations and numbers, nor the training area boundary changes. Please reference the Deer Hunting Map located on the reference maps page for the time being.
Daytime Coyote Hunting - please note that the hours of daytime coyote hunting are 1 hour prior to official sunrise to 1 hour after official sunset.
