Lower Santee River striped bass battling tough summer conditions

Striped bass and other fish living in the Lower Santee River are struggling to survive high water temperatures and overcrowding. The extended Santee Dam flood gate opening associated with last fall’s flooding spilled an excessive number of lake fish into the river, and anglers have reported seeing unusual numbers of striped bass carcasses in the river for several weeks.
