South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, Georgia Department of Natural Resources, and US Army Corps of Engineers are conducting a study of striped bass (rockfish) in Thurmond Reservoir (Clark Hill). The objectives of the study are to:

  1. Evaluate striped bass use of the Russell tailrace.
  2. Evaluate striped bass use of the newly oxygenated area below Modoc, SC.
  3. Determine angler harvest rates.

To accomplish these objectives, a number of striped bass have been implanted with transmitters and externally tagged. All tags have a cash value.
