The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Fisheries Bureau is announcing new regulations regarding the use of sport fishing trotlines, throw lines, set hooks, limb lines, Free Floating Fishing Devices (FFFDs), and yo-yos on Ross Barnett Reservoir.
The new regulations prohibit the use of these gear types in Pelahatchie Bay and Pelahatchie Creek.
These gear types are also banned in the area of the reservoir north of the main dam to a line between the point where Twin Harbors channel enters the main lake in Madison County and the Fannin Landing boat launch in Rankin County.
In addition, these gear types cannot be used within 100 yards of any sandbar or public boat launching facility within the main lake or river, and in any marked navigational channel between State Highway 43 and Ratliff Ferry in Madison County.
These regulations become effective July 22. Anglers must have a valid sport fishing license to fish these gears.
