Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) wants you to mark your calendar for 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. 

For more information regarding hunting or fishing in Mississippi, visit www.mdwfp.com or call us at (601) 432-2400. Follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/mdwfp or on Twitter at www.twitter.com/MDWFPonline.
