Frequently Asked Questions


    Where can I purchase a fishing license?

    To review Georgia fishing regulations and to purchase a license, please contact the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division at 1-800-366-2661 or visit them online at

    The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service does not issue fishing licenses.

    Why do we need federal hatcheries and who pays for them?

    This is a national fish hatchery which is supported by tax dollars. Fish raised on Federal hatcheries are stocked in public waters to support Federal fishery responsibilities mandated by law. These include fish for restoration where, for example, man-made dams have altered a stream’s natural reproductive capability; or to restore threatened or endangered populations. Fish are also used to support recreational fishing programs in Federal and state waters.

    Do you provide fish to private individuals?

    This was once a function of the National Fish Hatchery system. “Farm pond” stocking is not considered a Federal responsibility, and fish are no longer provided to individuals. All the fish raised at this facility are stocked into public waters.
