The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks is excited to announce the re-opening of Lake Monroe after abruptly closing at the end of March 2023 due to extensive tornado damage. 

Starting at 6 a.m. on Saturday, anglers can once again enjoy the 99-acre state fishing lake located in Monroe County, between Aberdeen and Amory. Lake Monroe will be open to both bank and boat fishing; however, the campground and buildings will remain closed until further notice.  

After enduring the storms this spring, we are excited to invite anglers back to Lake Monroe for fishing.
