Top Fishing Holes Near Metro Atlanta Highlighted Through Gateway to Fishing Program

We know that fishing with family and friends builds positive relationships and increases environmental awareness of participants. However, for a potential new angler to benefit, it is often critical to be able to find nearby and accessible fishing locations. 

The Gateway to Fishing Program is dedicated to enhancing and promoting fishing in easily accessible and close-to-home public waters, like metro and suburban park lakes, and educating the public about "why, where, and how to Go Fish Georgia!" To make that happen, we are working with communities to raise awareness of existing locations, assist with helping improve fishing, and offering support for hosting fishing events.

Currently, the program is highlighting 10 Metro Atlanta locations that offer great fishing, with plans to continue adding new locations throughout the year.
