Cold-water north Georgia streams are receiving plenty of trout stockings in time for the opening day of seasonal trout streams on tomorrow.
In all, more than 1 million trout will be stocked by the end of this year, thanks to efforts by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The daily limit is eight trout on general regulation trout waters.
Anglers are reminded to respect private property rights along streams flowing through private lands and to obtain permission before fishing on private property.
Anglers must possess a current Georgia fishing license and a trout license to fish in designated trout waters and to fish for or possess trout.
Anglers must also possess a wildlife management area license or Georgia Outdoor Recreation Pass (GORP) in order to fish on certain WMAs.
