Residents

  • Proof of residence, such as a Georgia driver's license, is required when purchasing a fishing license.
  • Resident anglers, 16 - 64 years of age are required to have a current Georgia fishing license in their possession while fishing in freshwater and saltwater in Georgia.
  • Residents 65 years of age or older may fish with the Senior (65+) Lifetime License. This license can be obtained at no cost from license dealers by furnishing proof of age (Georgia driver's license, birth certificate, etc.).
  • Residents that are permanently and totally disabled may obtain a Disability Honorary Combination Hunting & Fishing License by applying to the License Unit. Proof of disability must accompany the application. Proof of disability may come from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Social Security Administration, Railroad Retirement System, or another government agency.
  • Those that are blind can apply for a Lifetime Honorary Fishing License and must provide a Physician's certification of blindness with the application.

Note: Georgia DNR has Agreements with Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, and South Carolina that allow holders of Georgia fishing licenses to fish in the waters covered without obtaining a fishing license from the bordering state. See Agreements With Bordering States.
