June 1-2, 2013 Designated as
Free Fishing Weekend in Mississippi!
On June 1-2, 2013, any person may sport fish without a fishing license or a state lake fishing or boating permit. The weekend kicks off National Fishing and Boating Week which celebrates the importance of recreational boating and fishing in enhancing quality of life and conserving our country's natural resources.
Free fishing days are a perfect opportunity to try out fishing for the first time. If you are already an angler, this is a great time to take a friend or family member who has never been fishing.
Also taking place across the state on June 1 are many free youth fishing events. To find an event near you, visit the MDWFP "Upcoming Events" calendar at mdwfp.com.
Katfishin' Kids will take place on June 1, 2013 at Turcotte Lab off Hwy 43 at Ross Barnett Reservoir, for ages 15 and under, accompanied by adults. Equipment and refreshments are FREE. Click here for details.
