Beginning with its formation, the Lanier Striper Club has been a loud and strong voice for conserving Lake Lanier’s favorite fish – the Striped Bass. The Club was one of the leaders in establishing catch and release standards not only for its members but also the multitude of folks who fish on Lanier. The Club advocates for catch and release in its meetings, in the media, and in other formats. The Club and its members have donated thousands of dollars for the purchase of tanks used to transfer Striped Bass Fry from the hatcheries to Georgia Lakes including Lanier.
