Reciprocal License Agreements
Mississippi has reciprocal license agreements with Arkansas and Louisiana that allow a Mississippi RESIDENT License (sport or commercial) to be valid to fish in the Arkansas or Louisiana side of lakes or streams that share a boundary with Mississippi.
Residents of either state are bound by the regulations, gear usage, and creel and length limits of the STATE THEY ARE FISHING IN; not by the regulations of the state they are licensed with when fishing in the border waters of the other state that did not issue them a license.
