Free Fishing Days
Go fishing with family and friends without buying a fishing license during Georgia's 2015 Free Fishing Days:
September 26, 2015
September 26 is National Hunting & Fishing Day (fourth Saturday in September of each year)
Free Fishing Days are declared by the Commissioner of the Department of Natural Resources to: encourage people to try fishing and help celebrate fishing as wholesome and healthy recreation; promote respect for our state's natural resources, wilderness, and wildlife; and recognize anglers for their contribution of billions of dollars to the state's economy and financial support for programs to conserve and protect our natural resources.
What happens on a Free Fishing Day?
Georgia residents 16 years and older do not need a fishing license, trout license, or Wildlife Management Area license (if you fish at a Public Fishing Area or Waters Creek) to fish the freshwaters and saltwaters of Georgia.
This does not include fees at private ponds and lakes.
All other fishing regulations remain in effect.
