Who needs a fishing license?
Anyone age 16 and older must have a current Georgia fishing license in their possession while fishing in Georgia. Conservation Rangers may require identification when checking fishing licenses.
When do licenses expire?
All recreational fishing and hunting licenses are valid for one full year (12 months) from the purchase date. Two-year licenses are valid for (surprise!) two full years (24 months) from the day they are purchased.
