The Anglers

rod divider

Every year, thousands of local and regional anglers fish the installation. We experience 60,000 to 80,000 angler-trips per year! Between the lakes and the rivers, there's always enough room to accommodate all theses anglers.

bass angler

This fisherman has a handful of largemouth bass caught from Pineview Lake (Pond #1). This is one of our more popular lakes and offers excellent largemouth bass, bluegill sunfish and black crappie fishing. This lake even has hybrid striped bass stocked for the angler's benefit. Every year countless numbers of anglers catch trophy sized fish from many of the installation's ponds. 

KFE event

Fort Stewart hosts an annual Kid's Fishing Event (KFE) as a way to promote fishing and provide a positive fishing experience for children and their parents. This event is held in conjunction with National Fishing Week (the first full week in June) and is free to all children under 16 years of age. Pond #30 is often designated as the KFE pond.  Hunter Army Airfield's annual Kids Fishing Event is held in conjunction with National Hunting and Fishing Day (the last Saturday of September) at Halstrom Pond (Pond 24).

More happy anglers after a successful day's fishing!
