2011 Georgia Trout Stocking

posted in: regional | 0

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
plan to stock more than one million trout in Georgia streams, rivers and small lakes by the end of the year.

Seasonal trout streams opened on Sat., Mar. 26th. Some popular seasonal streams include Cooper Creek in Union County, Wildcat Creek in Rabun County, Dicks Creek in Lumpkin County and Johns Creek in Floyd County.  The state also offers an excellent array of year round fly fishing areas.

Anglers must possess both a current Georgia fishing license and a trout license to fish in designated trout waters and to fish for or possess trout. Licenses can be purchased online and at various local sporting good dealers.

Georgia anglers can buy licenses online (www.gofishgeorgia.com), by phone (1-800-366-2661) or at a retail license vendor (list of vendors available at website).

For more trout fishing information, visit www.gofishgeorgia.com where current Georgia Sport Fishing Regulations, a complete list of stocked streams, a Northeast Georgia fishing guide, and the award-winning Trout Streams of Georgia map are available.

Printed copies of the regulations and trout stream map are available at all Wildlife Resources Division Fisheries Management offices and at some official fishing license dealers.
