Georgia’s lakes, rivers, streams, and coastal waters are a paradise for anglers, who reel in an assortment of game fish from bass and trout in North Georgia to grouper off the coast. Bring your own boat or rent one to get out on the water in search of a great catch, or simply cast a line from the shore. Either way, you’ll need a fishing license before your trip.
Looking for clues of where to go fishing in Georgia? Charter a boat with a guide to show you the best places to catch the big one off the Georgia coast or on one of Georgia’s lakes. Or, if fly fishing is more your speed, wade into the water with experts who can show you the art and science of the sport.
Fishing is a great activity for the whole family, and Georgia State Parks and Public Fishing Areas are perfect places to introduce young ones to the joys of getting a bite at the end of the line and reeling it in. Plan a weekend fishing trip to a state park and pair fishing lessons with a sleepover in a tent or cabin.
