State waives fishing fees for National Boating Week
Mississippi is observing National Fishing and Boating Week June 1-8 by waiving fishing fees and boat launching to fish for anglers on Mississippi State Fishing Lakes and State Park Lakes for three weekend days, June 1, 7 and 8.
A valid Mississippi freshwater fishing license or proof of exemption is still required.
“This is an opportunity for anglers to spend some time on the water, near their homes and save a few dollars,” said director of fisheries Ron Garavelli.
Mississippi has 24 state fishing lakes and 22 state park lakes. Most allow fishing from the bank and special fishing piers. Each has a boat launching facility for those wanting to fish from their boat. For family fun, many lakes have picnic tables that offer an opportunity to enjoy the scenery and take a respite from the time on the water.
For a list of lakes and other fishing related information visit www.mdwfp.com and click on the fishing icon, or call 601-432-2400.
