Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) welcomes the start of National Fishing and Boating Week (June 5-13), a national celebration of fishing and boating. As part of the celebration, MDWFP has designated June 5-6 as “Free Fishing Days,” which means Mississippi residents do not need a sport fishing license for all public waters and permits are not required at state fishing lakes and state park lakes.
July 4 also is designated as a “Free Fishing Day.” Mississippi residents again can fish without a fishing license, but permits will be required at state fishing lakes and state park lakes.
