Proposed Regulations

Currently, there are three proposed changes to 2014-2015 Georgia Fishing Regulations under consideration:

Proposed changes include: 

  • Replacing the current protective slot-length limit for largemouth bass from Lake Oconee with a         minimum length limit.
  • Modifying the current minimum length limit for largemouth bass from the lower Ocmulgee River     (between Macon’s Spring Street Bridge crossing and its confluence with the Oconee River).
  • Modifying the current minimum length limit of shoal bass from the upper Flint River (upstream of Warwick Dam).
