Fishing Forecasts

Since Dec. 15, 2018, the fishing forecasts have been undergoing updates and are therefore unavailable. The updates will be completed around the end of January 2019. Thanks for your patience.

Georgia offers some of the best, most diverse, fishing opportunities in the Southeast with more than 500,000 acres of lakes and 12,000 miles of warm water streams available to anglers. The information below provides a detailed description of the fishing prospects for 31 of Georgia's lakes and 18 rivers in Georgia.

Each prospect was compiled by Fisheries biologists and is based on sampling efforts by the Wildlife Resources Division and on knowledge of past fishing trends, fishing experiences and discussions with anglers and marina owners. They contain information on best bets for 2018, fishing hot spots, lures, techniques, detailed interactive maps, boating and angling access points, fish attractor locations, stream gauge data and more.
