Public Meetings & Hearings


Trout Regulations: Public Hearings

Currently, trout streams are designated either seasonal or year-round.  But, what if that designation were to change? 

Agency staff recently evaluated the effects of removing the “trout season” entirely and opening all trout waters to year-round fishing.  The Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division would like to have your input on this topic at two upcoming public hearings.
