The customary annual events at the Chattahoochee National Fish Hatchery have been cancelled due to the effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
In their place there will be a one-day event:

June 4th: Angler Appreciation Day. GA Free Fishing Day

In preparation for the event, the entire length of Rock Creek will be heavily stocked (Not just the section at the Hatchery). The stocked fish will include fish that have been tagged. If you catch a tagged fish, remove the tag and return the tag to the Hatchery the following week to collect a prize.

Prizes include a grill, cooler, camping equipment,, and a mountain bike all donated by the efforts of the Friends group.
