Mississippi has diverse aquatic habitats that provide a wide
variety of angling experiences. It is the primary goal of the
Fishing Education and Outreach Program to highlight these
opportunities to the public and get more people fishing. We realize
that some segments of our state have not had the chance or
knowledge to get outdoors. The Fishing
Rodeo program offers children the chance to wet a line in
a controlled area. A two-day
Youth Fish Camp is being held in Tupelo. Attendees will
learn about fishing, fish biology, and aquatic resources.
Fish biology and aquatic information can be had with a visit to the
of Natural Science in Jackson or our new North
Mississippi Education and Visitors Center in Enid. There you
can check out the aquaria, find displays of fish and fishing
tackle, and see what a fish biologist does.
Do you already know how to fish and just need some
information before you go? Up-to-date fishing reports give you the
wheres and hows to catch the big ones. These reports are updated
weekly from February through November. Anglers wanting more
information about their favorite fishing spot can read the Reel Facts
Sheets. Reel Facts summarize fish and angler data collected
by MDWFP Fisheries Biologists. Looking for a boat ramp? Visit
our Ramps &
Piers page to find information on ramp locations, type of ramp,
and cost, if any. You caught a big fish, but is it a record?
Current Mississippi Sport Fish Records and
Sport Fish Record Applications can be found here. Planning an
upcoming trip and looking for the best spots? Find the hot lakes
