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
