Why Fish Georgia?
You’ve heard about the peaches, but it’s the fishing that should really bring you for a visit to Georgia. In fact, the Go Fish Georgia initiative is so gung-ho about the fishing opportunities GA provides, they are working hard to establish Georgia as national fishing destination. You can catch striped bass up to 25 pounds in Lake Allatoonaand Lake Lanier, and Clarks Hill Lake (the largest in GA, with more than 1,200 miles of shoreline) is a mecca for stripers and hybrid bass. Don’t miss those trout streams in Northeastern Georgia, though! The cool mountain waters provide plenty of bites between March and October.
You can purchase your fishing license online through the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. From there, you’re welcome to drop a line in any of the local reservoirs, rivers, and lakes.
