"Make sure you put a trout fishing trip on your list of things to do this spring, especially with the opening of seasonal trout streams beginning Sat., March 28, 2015. The Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service plan to stock more than 80,000 trout during the last full week of March, with more than one million trout scheduled for stocking by the end of this year.

“The four trout hatcheries in Georgia are full of high quality fish this year. A small amount of stocking has already taken place, but it will pale in comparison to the amount of fish scheduled for stocking from March 23rd through 27th to celebrate Opening Day for seasonal streams,” says John Lee Thomson, trout stocking coordinator for the Wildlife Resources Division. “Almost every water body, with very few exceptions, that is stocked by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources or our partners at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will be stocked by Opening Day, March 28th. ”

Some popular seasonal streams include Cooper Creek in Union County, Wildcat Creek in Rabun County, Dicks Creek in Lumpkin County and Johns Creek in Floyd County. “One of the best opportunities for fishing success will be this spring when stream flows are high and the water is cool,” says Thomson."
