Mississippi has diverse aquatic habitats that provide a wide
variety of angling experiences. It is the primary goal of the
Fishing Education and Outreach Program to highlight these
opportunities to the public and get more people fishing. We
realize that some segments of our state have not had the chance or
knowledge to get outdoors. The Fishing
Rodeo program offers children the chance to wet a line in
a controlled area. Women wanting to get into outdoor
activities for the first time or just wanting to brush up on
acquired skills can attend the annual Becoming an Outdoors Woman
seminar held at a selected state park. Fish biology and
aquatic information can be had with a visit to the Mississippi Museum of
Natural Science in Jackson or our new North
Mississippi Education and Visitors Center in Enid. There
you can check out the aquaria, find displays of fish and fishing
tackle, and see what a fish biologist does.
Do you already know how to fish and just need some
information before you go? Up-to-date fishing reports give
you the wheres and hows to catch the big ones. These reports
are updated weekly from February through November. Looking
for a boat ramp? Visit our Ramps & Piers page
to find information on ramp locations, type of ramp, and cost, if
any. You caught a big fish, but is it a record? Current
Mississippi Sport Fish Records and
Sport Fish Record Applications can be found here.
