Make a Difference!

Turn $5 into $55 for fish and wildlife: Buy a one-day hunt/fish license. 100% of license fees support Georgia wildlife, but purchases also return much more in federal excise taxes paid by hunters and anglers. See Commissioner’s Message for information on Sport Fish Restoration funding!

 

Commercial Fishing Licenses

Commercial fishing licenses may be purchased in-person or by mail from DNR offices located at:

Brunswick, GA 31520

Georgia’s Public Boat Ramps

WRD operates 150 boating access sites across the state providing access to your favorite activities, such as fishing. The purchase of fishing licenses and related equipment helps install and operate these sites. Inappropriate use and vandalism to these sites costs tens of thousands of dollars annually, reducing our ability to provide new opportunities.

YOU HAVE THE POWER TO PROTECT YOUR RAMPS!

Don’t let others take away your recreational opportunities.
