Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

A delightful place to take the grandchildren so that they can learn about fish. The staff is very helpful and considerate and caters to the kids. They even help the younger ones feed the fish.

All of my kids have been here at least once on a school field trip. I haven't had a chance to go with them. But they always come back & tell us how great it was.

Go Fish is a fun education center with lots of educational exhibits and hands on activities related to the sport and industry of fishing. You can even fish while you are there in a small pond - bait and poles provided!

The catch-and-release pond was the biggest hit to break up a long trip down the interstate. Don't expect to catch a monster -- but the hooks and the bait are ready when you are. Inside, there are several exhibits and simulators to experience what it's like to reel in a giant salt water specimen or a large mouth bass. The outdoor aquarium is well stocked and landscaped. And we learned a good bit about the river and lake systems in the state. The kids also enjoyed the "shooting range" (basically a video target and wild game hunt simulator), but I was less impressed with that than the actual fishing experience.

I wouldn't plan a vacation around this destination, but it's certainly worth the visit if you're passing through.
