New Fisheries Rules Effective March 26

JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) announced several regulation changes that will become effective on March 26, 2014.  One of the rule changes bans anglers from using limb lines and set hooks at Lake Washington in Washington County; however, sport fishing trotlines, free floating fishing devices (jugs), and Yo-Yos will be allowed.  Creel limits for the Charles Ray Nix Wildlife Management Area ponds in Panola County will be statewide limits for all fish.  In addition, skiers visiting State Fishing Lakes will be allowed to ski on Memorial Day and the July 4th and Labor Day holidays from noon until sunset.
