McAlpine Lake in Amory Joins MDWFP Community Assistance Program
The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks
(MDWFP) Fisheries Bureau has accepted the City of Amory's McAlpine
Lake for participation in the MDWFP Community Assistance Program.
McAlpine Lake is a 2.5 acre pond located on 10th Avenue
The goal of the MDWFP Community Assistance Program is to
increase fishing opportunities in urban settings, especially for
young anglers, by assisting local communities with the development
and management of their lakes and ponds. The MDWFP will stock fish
and provide technical assistance regarding fish harvest regulations
and aquatic plant control to program participants.
McAlpine Lake will be open to youth age 15 and under on Monday,
Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Anglers are limited to one
pole and can harvest up to 10 bream, two catfish, and one
largemouth bass per day.
Those seeking additional information may call Rory Thornton with
the Amory Parks and Recreation Department at (662) 256-3221 or the
MDWFP Fisheries Bureau at (601) 432-2200.
