State parks and lakes to reopen
Coast beaches are reopening as a result of revised stay-at-home guidelines for Mississippi and that means other state recreational areas will follow suit.
The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks will reopen state lakes and state park lakes to fishing and boating at 8 a.m. on Monday, April 20th, 2020.
Bank fishing will be allowed with social distancing guidelines, but fishing piers will remain closed.
As a reminder, a state fishing license is required to fish on any public body of water in Mississippi.
