The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) wants you to mark your calendar for National Fishing and Boating Week June 1 – 9, a national celebration of fishing and boating. June 1st and 2nd are designated as “Free Fishing Days” in Mississippi and any person may sport fish without a license. In addition, daily permits to fish at state fishing lakes and state park lakes are not required.
July 4th is also designated as a “Free Fishing Day” statewide, and anglers will be able to fish without a license on any public water. However, daily permits will be required to fish any state fishing lake or state park lake on July 4.
Those seeking additional information may call the MDWFP Fisheries Bureau at (601) 432-2200.
