2017 River Fishing Prospects
There are over 12,000 miles of warm water streams in Georgia. The following information and information found within the links to the right provide a description of the prospects for fishing Georgia's rivers in 2009. Click on each river name for additional information.
The outlook for each river was compiled by Fisheries biologists and is based on sampling efforts by the Wildlife Resources Division and on knowledge of past fishing trends, staff fishing experiences and discussions with anglers.
DNR routinely tests the tissue of fish collected from rivers and reservoirs across the state. Based on the best scientific information and procedures available, Guidelines for Eating Fish from Georgia Waters are developed to help Georgia anglers and their families evaluate the health risks of eating fish from wild populations.
