Just wanted to follow up that I went out to the Tyger River fishing event this past weekend. Despite poor weather the day before, they had a real good crowd show up for the event.

People fished along the river and there were retail booths along with BBQ. It probably ended up being a little more geared towards kids but it was a fun time. Did anyone else go?

There is fishing at any number of places north of Marietta as you get closer to NC. You can always head down to Keowee, Jocassee, or Hartwell. I'm not sure if you can still fish off Saluda Dam Rd, but that may be an option for you. Also along the Saluda River, you can fish at the park in Ware Shoals, or off/below either bridge at Maddox Bridge Rd, or Erwin Mill Rd. You can fish at Boyd Millpond, which is also near Ware Shoals.
Pretty much all of the originally listed places would be good for catfish.

If you are 16 or older you are required to have a license unless on a paid pond IIRC. I tried to find specifics on the DNR website, but couldn't find any additional information and their main office is closed right now.

Private ponds, no. Government maintained lakes (Greenwood, Hartwell, etc.) and reservoirs, and I think rivers yes. No idea about pay ponds.

Saltwater Fishing License
A Saltwater Fishing License is required when harvesting marine resources, including finfish, oysters, clams, shrimp, and crab. A saltwater recreational fishing license is required unless fishing on a licensed public fishing pier; fishing on a licensed charter vessel while under hire; using 3 or fewer drop nets, 3 or fewer fold-up traps, or 3 or fewer handlines with no hooks and single bait per line (chicken necking); or shrimp baiting (which requires a shrimp baiting license).

Freshwater Fishing License
A Freshwater Fishing License is required unless you are fishing in a privately-owned pond. A license is required when fishing in commercial pay ponds, unless the pond is permitted by the SCDNR.

Youth Exemption
No child under 16 years of age is required to obtain a hunting or fishing license unless that child engages in the taking of game or fish for commercial purposes or possesses any nongame fishing devices.
