Recreational boating and fishing is prohibited on Chotard and Albermarle until flood waters recede.

Fishing on Chotard and Albemarle is always dependent upon the MS River level and movement.  For best results on these lakes, always check the MS River report to know if the river is moving in or out of the lake and target areas of moving water for improved fishing.  Fishing is typically best when the river is on a slow fall.  For most boats, access to the river is almost impossible when the river is below 13 feet (Vicksburg Gauge).


Call Chotard Landing for more information at (601) 279-4282.
