Effective Saturday, November 30, the boat ramp at Simpson County Lake will close. The lake is being drained to make repairs to the dam. Simpson County Lake is a 76-acre state fishing lake located on Highway 49 between Magee and Mendenhall.
Fishing will be allowed while the lake continues to drain. All daily limits have been lifted and anglers may keep as many fish as they want until the lake closes, but only by rod and reel or pole. No other fishing gear is allowed. A state lake permit and a Mississippi fishing license is required unless exempt under state law. The dam is closed to public access.
