From Georgia DNR: No more trout seasons

May 12, 2015

Trout season opened this past March, but unlike previous years, they will no longer have a closing date. Beginning April 21, 2015, state trout streams will remain open year-round, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division.

“The Board of Natural Resources recently approved the lifting of seasonal restrictions on approximately 1,600 miles of trout waters,” said John Biagi, Fisheries Section Chief of the Wildlife Resources Division. “This decision, which initiated as something that anglers had been requesting for many years, comes after many months of research and analysis and extensive public outreach and we anticipate that trout anglers will eagerly welcome this additional time on the water.”

This change in trout fishing regulations only eliminates the dates of “trout season.” So, come this Octo-ber, the season will not close as it has in past years.
