SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. (Dec. 30, 2019) – Be sure to use the brand new 2020 Georgia Sport Fishing Regulations Guide as you make all your fishing plans for next year says the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division (WRD).

“Maybe you are looking for info about the Georgia Bass Slam or how to get your kids ‘hooked’ on fishing? Anglers, new or experienced, should always begin with this publication,” said Thom Litts, Chief with the WRD Fisheries Management Section. “Our biologists and staff work to make sure this guide book has the most current and accurate information on regulations and new opportunities, and anglers can access it online, from our Outdoors GA app or in the printed copy.”

The 2020 Georgia Sport Fishing Regulations Guide provides information such as a color fish identification chart for both freshwater and saltwater fish, license purchasing information, contact information for Wildlife Resources Division and Coastal Resources Division fisheries management offices and DNR Law Enforcement offices, trout stream listings, public fishing area information, state record fish listings, fishing regulations for Georgia and more.

The 2020 Georgia Sport Fishing Regulations may be found online at http://www.eregulations.com/georgia/fishing/, or through the Outdoors GA app (free app for iPhone or Android users). Anglers also can pick up a printed copy at any Wildlife Resources Division fisheries management or DNR Law Enforcement office, or at fishing license vendors throughout Georgia.

Where else can you find fishing information? The Angler Resources page on the WRD website, http://georgiawildlife.com/fishing/angler-resources, is a great place for new or experienced anglers and includes information about taking kids fishing, reservoir and river fishing tips, fish ID info and much more.
