Georgia's Seasonal Trout Streams Open March 31-Trout Stockings Underway

More than one million trout will be stocked by the end of this year, thanks to efforts by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. In fact, many streams will be stocked by the end of March, just in time for the opening day of seasonal trout stream fishing, Sat., March 31.

“Our goal is to replenish all of our stocked streams before Opening Day,” says John Lee Thomson, acting trout stocking coordinator for the Wildlife Resources Division. “The mild winter gave us great growing conditions for trout in our hatcheries, and good stream flows this spring will give us the opportunity to spread the fish out.  It should be another excellent opening week of the Georgia trout season.”
