ANDERSON COUNTY, SC (Saturday, March 17, 2018) — Green Pond Landing has gone green, iridescent green. Hydro Glow fish attractant LED lights now illuminate a green halo around the courtesy docks at the Green Pond Landing Mega Boat Ramp. Designed to attract all spectrums of fish to the cove, this pier lighting project will also draw anglers and onlookers to Lake Hartwell’s brightest spot on the water after the sunsets.

“It is exciting to see projects completed that support recreational fishing and provide the public with good access to the 56,000-acre of Lake Hartwell,” said Anderson County Council Chairman Tommy Dunn.

It is important that we preserve our natural resources and maintain the public’s enthusiasm for fishing and boating, and provide a quality experience for folks utilizing our facilities.
Hydro Glow Fishing Lights enhance and accentuate the circle of life in a fishery. The green lights boost microorganisms in the water column which are the food base for Shad and Herring; baitfish population in the area. The result is a localized variety of fish feeding or passing through the light and dark water.

“This is the second virtual aquarium exhibit on the waters of Lake Hartwell. The hydro glow fishing lights were also installed in April 2017 at the Brown Road Bridge boat ramp,” said Matthew Schell, Parks Manager. “Hydro lights are clearly visible on the water and from the Double Bridges on Highway 24, creating ambiance for our local anglers and visitors to Lake Hartwell.”

Project partners include Hydro Glow, Inc. and locally owned Isom Electric. Darrell Keith, President of Hydro Glow, is a 19-year veteran business in the angling world. Both of these organizations have been dedicated to Green Pond Landing & Event Center and Visit Anderson since the grand opening in December 2014. Craig Isom, like many, grew up playing and fishing on the banks of Brown Road and was generous with his assistance to engineer the one-of-a-kind lighting project on Lake Hartwell. Anderson County greatly appreciates their individual contributions.
