Georgia offers some of the most diverse, fishing opportunities in the Southeast. Whether it’s fly fishing, deep sea fishing or the unending quest for the next world record bass, Georgia’s 500,000 acres of reservoirs and over 12,000 miles of warm water streams give all the opportunity to GO FISH. Head to Florence Marina State Park to get in on some of this “rod and reel” action. Situated at the northern end of 45,000-acre Lake Walter F. George, this park offers the perfect setting for those who love water sports. It is adjacent to a natural deep-water marina with an accessible deep-water fishing pier, boat slips and boat ramp.
While at the park, be sure to check out its other great amenities. Birders are sure to see herons and egrets, and possibly bald eagles. Perfect for the kids, the park’s Kirbo Interpretive Center teaches visitors about Native Americans, nature and local history, and it displays snakes, turtles, fish and artifacts from the prehistoric Paleo-Indian period through the early 20th century.
