National Fishing and Boating Week is just around the corner, running from June 3 to 11. This nationwide celebration is an invitation for all fishing and boating enthusiasts to come together and enjoy the outdoors.
In Mississippi, June 3 and 4 have been designated as “Free Fishing Days,” allowing all Mississippi residents to participate in sport fishing without a license. Also, fishing permits are not required for state fishing lakes and state park lakes during this time.
Additionally, mark your calendars for July 4, another designated “Free Fishing Day” statewide. On this day, residents can enjoy fishing without a license on any public water. However, it’s important to note that fishing permits will be required for fishing at state fishing lakes or state park lakes specifically on July 4.
