Striped Bass



Over 160,000 striped bass hit the waters of Lake Lanier today, May 9.  After a five-hour trip and then a one-hour lakeside water exchange to get the fish ready for Lanier’s softer waters, the one inch fingerlings were quick-released into the lake at the Sardis and Toto Creek ramps.  Special thanks to Richmond Hill Hatchery for today’s fish.

Striped and hybrid bass stockings continue across the state.
