ATLANTA (AP) - Seasonal trout streams in Georgia are set to open this weekend.

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service planned to stock more than 80,000 trout this week in preparation for the opening of seasonal trout streams Saturday. They plan to stock more than a million trout by the end of the year.

John Lee Thomson, trout stocking coordinator for the division, says the state’s four hatcheries are full of high-quality fish this year.

Anglers are reminded that they’re limited to eight trout on general regulation trout waters. They must also have a current Georgia fishing license and a trout license to fish in designated trout waters and to fish for or possess trout.
