Reciprocal Agreements

Mississippi has reciprocal agreements with Arkansas and Louisiana that allows a Mississippi RESIDENT License (sport or commercial) to be valid to fish in the Arkansas or Louisiana side of lakes or streams that share a boundary with Mississippi.

Residents of either state are bound by the regulations, gear usage, and creel and length limits of the STATE THEY ARE FISHING IN; not by the regulations of the state they are licensed with when fishing on the other state's side on border waters.
