JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP), by Commission Order on April 19, has closed Old Natchez Trace Lake at Trace State Park. MDWFP has completed the process of draining the lake in preparation for planned repairs to the dam.

Other activities, including fishing in the smaller lake near the Park entrance, will remain open. "We encourage our customers to continue to use our amenities like the hiking, mountain bike, and equestrian trails, as well as day-use areas, disc golf, and RV camping," said Jennifer Head, Director of State Parks. After repairs are complete, the lake will be filled and stocked with bass, bream, crappie, and catfish.
