Fishing

HCWSA Reservoirs
(770) 957-6659    Go to Website

Any resident or property owner of Henry County, Georgia may obtain a permit from Henry County Water to fish at select HCWSA reservoirs, which typically rotate in terms of public access each year to protect fish habitat.

The Regular Season for public fishing at HCWSA reservoirs customarily begins the first weekend in March and concludes the last weekend of November, when the Winter Fishing Season begins with more limited access to select reservoirs – usually the same ones that were open during the previous regular season. The Winter Fishing Season at the HCWSA typically runs from December through the end of February of the following year.
