Heavy Rains Bring Restrictions To Popular Lake


Effective immediately, the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks has declared Moon Lake in Coahoma County, a temporary “No-Wake Zone.”

Because of heavy rains and runoff waters, the water level on Moon Lake has reached a point where property and pier structures along the lake shores are easily damaged by the wakes created by boat traffic. People can also be injured on these piers by the boat wakes.

Any and all boat traffic shall operate in a “dead slow – leave no wake” manner so as not to create any wake on Moon Lake. This No-Wake Zone declaration shall continue in full force and effect until the waters shall recede to a level where normal wakes no longer threaten the properties and piers along the shores.
