Recent proposed changes to Georgia fishing regulations regarding bass length limits were recently approved by the Board of Natural Resources and will become effective as of Sept. 17, 2014. Areas affected include Lake Oconee, the lower Ocmulgee River and upper Flint River.


Approved changes include:

  • Modifying the current 14-inch minimum length limit for largemouth bass from the lower Ocmulgee River (between Macon?s Spring Street Bridge crossing and its confluence with the Oconee River) with a 12-inch minimum length limit.
  • Modifying the current 12-inch minimum length limit for shoal bass from the upper Flint River (upstream of Warwick Dam) with a 15-inch minimum length limit.
