As the days get warmer and sun gets brighter, more and more visitors stop by the Walker County Visitors Center to inquire about outdoor activities. We've come to find that if there is one thing that people around here love to do, its fish. If you are one of the many Walker County residents who love to fish, it might be worth noting that Saturday, June 11th has been declared a Free Fishing Day, meaning that a fishing license, trout license, or Wildlife Management Area license (if you fish at a Public Fishing Area or Waters Creek) is not required to fish the freshwaters and saltwaters of Georgia. So plan a trip with family and friends, and enjoy a full day of fishing without having to worry about who has a liscence and who doesn't. Use this opportunity to celebrate fishing as a healthy and wholesome form of recreation, and promote respect for wilderness, wildlife, and the state's natural resources.
Please remember that that all other fishing regulations remain in effect.
