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.

Commercial Fishing Licenses

There are new requirements and revised fees for commercial fishing licenses purchased for the April 1, 2018 through March 31, 2019 commercial license year. These new commercial fishing licenses will go on sale on January 1, 2018. Please visit GoOutdoorsGeorgia.com
for details.

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.
