JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) Fisheries Bureau recently stocked 300 adult channel catfish into Coahoma County Lake in Clarksdale. Located on the grounds of the Coahoma County Expo Center, this lake is part of MDWFP's Community Fishing Assistance Program and is managed jointly by MDWFP and the Coahoma County Board of Supervisors. "This is the second time this year we've stocked the lake with catfish," said Nathan Aycock, MDWFP Fisheries Biologist. "We plan to stock more fish throughout 2017. This is a great opportunity to take a child fishing or to get back into fishing if you haven't been in a while," added Aycock.
Coahoma County Lake has a five fish per day limit for catfish. A valid fishing license is required to fish the lake for all anglers except those legally exempt from license requirements. The lake is open to fishing daily from sunrise to sunset.
