Go Fish Georgia Initiative

Brought to you by:

The Go Fish Georgia Initiative, a program expected to boost economic development and tourism across the state, is making Georgia more competitive by establishing the State as a national fishing destination through a three-tiered approach:

  1. improving the quality of fishing in Georgia waters;
  2. improving access to water bodies for fishing in Georgia; and
  3. increasing participation through active promotion and marketing of Georgia’s exceptional fishing resources.

Accomplishments to Date

  • The Georgia Bass Trail consists of large capacity boat ramps built through a partnership between local and state organizations. Seventeen tournament-style ramps will be built through partnerships.
  • The Go Fish Educational Center in Perry is fully operational. The center teaches the public about fish and wildlife habitat, fishing traditions and techniques, and where to fish in Georgia.
  • Coming soon is the Trophy Bass Program, which will be developed in 2012.
