The Enid Project encompasses over 44,000 acres of both wetlands
and forests. Created for Flood Risk Management, Enid Dam was
finished in 1952 and today is recognized as one of the top
fishing spots in the country.
The North Mississippi Fish Hatchery Visitor Education Center is
located on 58 acres leased from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
The Hatchery relies on Enid Lake for its water supply, along with
water from two ground water wells. Enid Lake also offers many
recreational opportunities for school groups, scout troups, and
families visiting the Hatchery and Education Center. Recreational
opportunites include numerous picnic areas, campgrounds, fitness
areas, playgrounds, and nature trails.
