   Georgia contains an estimated 20,000 miles of rivers and streams, and the majority of these carry fresh water and provide habitat for warm-water fish (in a nutshell, warm-water species are anything other than trout and salmon). A quick glance at the US Geological Survey map on my wall shows at least 70 rivers and streams in Georgia that provide float-fishing opportunities. As much as we'd probably want to, I doubt any of us will be able to fish them all. 

    We can, however, fish the rivers and streams that are nearby, and there is not anyone in Georgia that lives more than half an hour from a quality warm-water river or stream. Listed below are some rivers and streams in northern and middle Georgia that Georgia River Fishing knows pretty well. Click on the body of water that interests you to get a thumbnail sketch of that river: location, types of fish you can expect, boating suggestions, and any major hazards of which you may not be aware (dams, big rapids, etc.). Be sure to read "Planning a Float Trip" on our Articles section for information on finding access points and other details. The rivers and streams we have profiled so far are to the left. Click on the one that interests you.
