Pass and Permit System
Because military training is Fort Stewart's top priority, angler access into all areas of the installation must be controlled to ensure unimpeded training and safety of the anglers. Consequently, ALL anglers who have purchased a fishing permit must check in with the Pass & Permit Office before going fishing.
Fort Stewart/HAAF utilizes an automated access system whereby anglers who have a valid fishing permit may use a touch tone phone to verify that the pond or river landing they wish to fish is open. Then through a menu of recorded message options, the angler can quickly and easily check-in from the convenience of their home or cellular phone.
The Fort Stewart Pass & Permit Office (435-8061/8033) is located off GA Hwy 144 in front of the pistol and archery ranges. After purchasing a permit from this office, please remember to get an instruction package. This package will guide you through the automated check in process. Once you've purchased your fishing permit, you may call one of the numbers below to check in. Anglers are not required to check-out. Currently the hours of operation for Pass & Permit are as follows:
- Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday: 11:00 AM - 6:00 PM
- Saturday, Sunday, Holidays, and Training Holidays: 7:00 AM - 3:00 PM
- Tuesday: CLOSED

Checking into a Training Area on Ft. Stewart or HAAF:
When checking into an area, you will enter the numeric code for the area followed by the area number. See the table below.
Checking into a Pond or River Landing:
When checking into a pond, enter "08" followed by the pond number (example: Pond 1 is "0801"). See table below. Note-when checking into a river landing, use the training area code.
Daily "Area Status Sheets" are generated twice weekly (and updated as needed) listing areas and ponds that are open for recreational use. "Area Status Sheets" can be found at https://www.flickr.com/photos/stewartoutdoors/sets/72157626523952930/.
EFFECTIVE 28 AUGUST 2001: The cantonment area of Fort Stewart will be gated and entry will be permitted only with an approved vehicle decal or a visitor's Day Pass issued by the Provost Marshall's Office. Access for hunting and fishing in the A, B, C, D, E, and F areas will not be affected, as all areas will be accessible without having to enter the cantonment area. For anglers fishing Pond 10 or hunters accessing A-20 or A-19 from the cantonment area, a visitor's Day Pass must be obtained before entry. Sportsmen and women coming from the Hinesville area who desire to travel to the Pass & Permit Office must do so via Hwy 47, through Flemington.
