Go fish!

Posted by blair on

Westminster Branch now offers fishing gear and tackle!

According to the Visit Oconee Website, Oconee County is the place to fish. With over 90,000 acres of lakes and over 100 miles of rivers and streams, you can hook up with world class fish year round! The Westminster branch wants to make access to fishing a little easier.  Visitors and residents of Oconee County have the ability to borrow fishing equipment from the library for one week with the option for another one-week renewal.  A rod, reel, sinker, 3 bobbers, 2 hooks, and instructions on casting a fishing rod is included…the bait is not. You can find bait at local shops and gas stations.

Kids and teens under the age of 16 must have a parent/legal guardian sign a waiver. Everyone age 16 and older must have a valid fishing license.  (These are not supplied by the library.) Fishing licenses can be purchased from local verified sellers or on the SCDNR webpage.

Besides traditional fishing rods, the library also has a fly-fishing pole with flies, children’s fishing poles, and tackle boxes to borrow. To find out more information, contact Leah Price at 864-364-5760, or stop by the Westminster Library at 112 W. North Avenue in Westminster.
