Bad Creek Views

  1. I’ve fished in that piece of the Whitewater River upstream? of the Bad Creek project. It was nice. The fish are wild, not stocked. I should go back.

  2. Bad Creek isn’t really a “lake” in the traditional sense. Water is pumped into the reservoir at night with excess power generation from Jocassee. It runs the generators during the day. The lake is essentially a big hollowed out hole up there with a major league tunnel running down to the power plant. Quite an amazing project. My youngest brother does a good deal of work up there and at Jocassee. I’ve seen a good deal of wildlife on the road down to the overlook, particularly turkeys. But storms can creep up on you in a hurry there.
