* Please Note: SCDNR has provided small downloadable Adobe PDF files. In order to accomplish this the orginal 2013-2014 SC Hunting and Fishing Regulations Guide has been modified and only includes the saltwater fishing portion of the regulations; therefore, page numbers will not correspond within the document.

Some of the files above are in the Adobe PDF format. Adobe® Reader® is required to open these files and is available as a free download from the Adobe® Web site.
