Overview

The Go Fish Education Center takes visitors on an educational journey through Georgia's watersheds to learn about our diverse aquatic wildlife, their natural habitats and the impacts of water pollution. Beyond that, the Center serves as a great resource of fishing information for any level of angler - where to go, what to use and when. We have over 170,000 gallons of aquatic exhibits that feature fish from the mountains, piedmont, coastal plain and swamp habitats of Georgia. We also have freshwater and saltwater fishing simulators, hunting simulators and a pond where you can try out your fishing skills. We are a Georgia Department of Natural Resources Facility. Open hours are Friday and Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm and Sunday from 1 pm to 5 pm. Tuesday - Thursday we do field trips or group tours. These need to be scheduled in advance.

I visited here with my son and his family of three young children. We had a blast! The children are always asking to go back. They also learn here.

If you want to spend time learning more about GA wildlife and fishing this is the place to go. It's great for kids. Take a picnic lunch and take the kids fishing.

It's $5 for adults ($4 for 65+), and $3 for ages 3-12. Under 3 is free. - Very much worth the price if you ask me!
