LET'S GO FISHING!
Anglers need to follow Georgia fishing regulations. A valid Georgia fishing license is required for anglers age 16 and older. Additionally, all resident anglers ages 16 to 64 and nonresident anglers age 16 or older must have a trout stamp. Visit the Georgia Department of Natural Resources website for more information about fishing license. Anglers are also required to possess a trout stamp even if they are fishing for other species. Learn all about fishing regulations from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources website.
Please remember if you are out on the river to have a wearable personal flotation device (PFD) in your possession. Anyone wading in the river between Buford Dam and the Highway 20 Bridge or between Morgan Falls Dam and the Morgan Falls Boat Ramp is required to wear their PFD at all times. It is highly recommended to wear your PFD even on the other stretches of river where it is not required. Exercise caution before swimming across the river, as the water is cold and the current may be swift. There are multiple deaths each year from people attempting to swim across the river most of whom were not wearing a properly fitting PFD. Always practice safety first, and check the flow before you go.
