SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. (AP) — The Georgia Department of Natural Resources has introduced a new website to help anglers take the guesswork out of finding a place to go fishing.

The department has posted online guides to Georgia's waterways that include weather forecasts and information on what fish species can be found in each of the state's waterways. The guide also includes technique tips and a boat ramp locator.

The guide was produced by fisheries biologists in the department's Wildlife Resources Division. Officials say they compiled the guide based on knowledge of past fishing trends, fishing experiences and consultations with anglers and marina owners.

Anglers must have a current Georgia fishing license to fish in public waters, and can buy one online to support fish restoration programs in the state.
