The MDWFP Southwest personnel are responsible for the
management of public water fisheries in the southwest area of
the state of Mississippi. This includes management of four
Mississippi River and three Yazoo River oxbow lakes, including
widely known Eagle Lake, in Warren County, and numerous miles of
small streams and rivers to provide quality fishing waters for the
sportsmen of Mississippi. This area also includes four State
Fishing Lakes, including Calling Panther Lake, in Copiah
County, as well as three great State Park Lakes.
The Southwest part of the state provides excellent opportunities
for everything from trophy bream, crappie and largemouth bass to
some of the best catfishing in the south. The Southwest
District Fisheries group provides the management expertise to
insure balanced fish populations, suitable habitat and the proper
water quality to provide anglers with enjoyable experiences while
using Mississippi's resources.
