Fishing limits and regulations are about to change for rivers and lakes shared by Georgia and South Carolina.

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources says the revised rules will take effect Sunday when the calendar turns to July. Georgia and South Carolina have an agreement to allow anglers to fish in border waters with a license from either state. The terms needed to change because South Carolina recently revised its fishing law.

The new regulations limit fishermen to five trout and 10 white bass per day in waters along the state border, and a limit of 10 striped bass or hybrid bass specifically on Lake Hartwell and Lake Clarks Hill.

The DNR says other affected waterways include the Savannah River, a portion of the Chattooga River and Lake Russell.
