Lake Wylie, situated on the border of South Carolina and North Carolina between Rock Hill, SC and Charlotte, NC, covers a total area of 12,177 acres, out of which 7,316 acres are located in South Carolina. To provide public access, Duke Energy works jointly with the SC Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) and York County, SC, to maintain five boat access areas in South Carolina, with bank fishing access available at Ebenezer County Park in York County. The creation of Lake Wylie dates back to 1904 when a dam was constructed near Fort Mill, SC, making it one of the oldest reservoirs in South Carolina. The dam was reconstructed in 1924, causing the lake's surface to expand to about 13,443 acres with 325 miles of shoreline.
The reservoir and hydroelectric facility were renamed in 1960 to honor Dr. W. Gil Wylie, who established the Catawba Power Company, a predecessor of Duke Energy. Besides powering the Wylie Hydroelectric Station, Lake Wylie also supports the cooling water needs of Allen Steam Station and Catawba Nuclear Station and provides a reliable water supply for Rock Hill, SC, and Belmont, NC. The SCDNR manages Lake Wylie for recreational fishing and has placed six fish attractors to enhance fishing opportunities. Among the popular sport fish in the lake are largemouth bass, crappie, and catfish. The SC DNR regularly monitors the population of these species to ensure their health and wellbeing.
