SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. (WTOC) - The Georgia Department of Natural Resources' Wildlife Resources Division have issued this year's sport fishing regulations for Georgia to all DNR offices and facilities, and several state parks and fishing license retailers.

"This guide is designed to help anglers find great places to fish and to educate them on Georgia's fishing opportunities and regulations," said WRD Chief of Fisheries Management John Biagi in a statement. "We are especially excited about the new 'look' of the regulations and hope they make information even easier to find."

The guide color fish identification charts for freshwater and saltwater fish, license purchasing information, contact information for WRD fisheries management offices and WRD law enforcement offices, trout stream listings, public fishing area information, state record fish listings and Georgia's fishing regulations, according to Wildlife Resources Division.

The Board of Natural Resources sets Georgia's fishing regulations based on recommendations made by the department's fisheries biologists and field personnel while the Georgia General Assembly sets the laws related to fishing.
