St. Stephen Fish Lift

SC's Only Fish Lift Offers Underwater View

Welcome to the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) Shad Cam project! The Shad Cam will be active from late March through mid-late May.

The Shad Cams are currently offline for the season. Please visit this webpage again in March of 2016 to see shad and other fish using the fish lift!

Watch for...

Striped bass (Morone saxatilis)

Blueback herring (Alosa aestivalis)

The majority of fish species will ascend the fishlift during the day while catfish species and sea lamprey will primarily move upstream at night. Spawning runs of anadromous fish in South Carolina generally occur between March and early June.
