The center promotes the activity of fishing throughout the state, and has freshwater aquariums stocked with trout, largemouth bass, and other Georgia fish. Visitors view aquatic wildlife, try out interactive fishing, boating, and shooting simulators, and catch fish in the stocked pond. The Center serves as a great resource for any level of angler, sharing where to fish in Georgia, what to use, and when to go. Perry area fishermen also love the Flat Creek public fishing area located on a 108-acre lake just south of Perry on Highway 41.
