Mississippi State Fishing Lakes

Hunting Regulations Icon Mississippi Hunting & Fishing

MDWFP operates 19 prime fishing lakes throughout the state which offer outstanding fishing on 4,091 acres of picturesque waters.

Sport fishing licenses and permits are required to fish these lakes. Exceptions are on the first weekend of National Fishing Week which is June 2 and 3, 2018, when fishing permits are free, and a sport fishing license is not required.

Only rod and reel or pole fishing is allowed on State Fishing Lakes and State Park Lakes except that carp, gar, buffalo, and bowfin may be taken by use of bow and arrow at night only after purchasing a valid permit for fishing and/or boating. No other gear is allowed at these lakes.

Fishing is not allowed from courtesy piers adjacent to boat ramps. Night fishing is allowed at all State Fishing Lakes (except for Lake Bill Waller) from the bank or boats which are in compliance with state and coast guard regulations.
