Make a Difference
The Trout Unlimited license plate provides vital funding for Georgia’s trout conservation and management programs. For only $25 more than the standard plate, you can help fund stocking trucks, trout feed, equipment, raceway enclosures, habitat improvement and more.
Georgia’s Public Boat Ramps
WRD operates more than 160 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.
Report Fish Kills
Help protect our valuable fish resources. Report fish kills as quickly as possible.
