You don’t have to ride to the north Georgia mountains to fish for rainbow trout this winter. WRD Fisheries has stocked approximately 700 rainbow trout at the Go Fish Education Center in Perry.

The Go Fish Education Center is operated by WRD and is a key part to the Go Fish Georgia Initiative. The Center’s facilities, programs and outreach directly support the Initiative’s mission to promote and enhance boating and fishing tourism in Georgia and to boost economic development in communities across the state.

DNR states on their website: “This initiative will result in quality fisheries resources statewide, including family friendly fishing and recreation access points that will increase fishing participation in Georgia.”

The rainbow trout were released into the center’s casting pond, and the trout are expected to created exciting angling experiences for visitors during the winter months.

This catch-and-release opportunity is available Fridays-Sundays (during center open hours).
