Freshwater fishing in Louisiana is second to none. Whether you’re looking to wet the line from the shore or drop your bass boat in the lake to cast for a troply, your fishing adventure is waiting in Louisiana.
Our fertile rivers and reservoirs play host to bass fishermen and world-class pros from around the country. In central Louisiana, the sprawling Toledo Bend Reservoir is home to many state records. Discover the allure of the Red and Ouachita Rivers in north Louisiana if you’re looking for big bass or catfish. Or head south to the ponds around the Bonnet Carre Spillway to haul in a mess of white perch.
If you know our culture you know that it’s not all about finfish in Louisiana. During September, many of our bayous are filled with gator hunters. And from December through May, crawfishermen are out in full force.
Pick your spot just about anywhere in the state and soon, you’ll understand why we say the fish are always biting in Louisiana.
