Alligator Gar Stocked in Bee Lake
JACKSON - Recent flooding of the
Mississippi River has allowed Asian carp access to many state
waters. The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and
Parks has stocked alligator gar into Bee Lake, Holmes County, in
effort to control the Asian carp population. Bee Lake will be
followed for several years to evaluate changes in fish populations.
The commercial harvest of alligator gar is prohibited in Bee Lake.
The Fisheries Bureau is asking anglers to report any catches of
tagged alligator gar at 601-432-2400.
