Fishing Map

Get oriented to fishing locations around Louisiana! 

Louisiana is a land of waterways, with fun-filled destinations in all corners of the state for those looking to cast a line. 

North Louisiana is home to lakes, streams and rivers where the bluegill and bass always seem to be biting. In-the-know anglers can point you to spots from Shreveport to Tallulah for dropping anchor, many of which can actually be found at Louisiana State Parks. 

A little way south, in central Louisiana, you can spend the night in the history-rich city of Natchitoches before embarking on a relaxing day of fishing at Cane River Lake or Toledo Bend Reservoir. Spring Bayou is a remote destination that offers incredible sightseeing and top-notch freshwater fishing for those willing to make the trek.

And down south, of course, are the marshes and Gulf waters that have made Louisiana a legendary saltwater fishing destination. Calcasieu Parish (near Lake Charles) is a boater’s paradise, and spots like Cocodrie, Grand Isle, Venice and Lake Borgne are destinations where you might just find your next (but certainly not your last) trophy fish.

Use this map to get started planning your trip, and feel free to reach out to the local CVBs (convention and visitors bureaus) for help with putting together the perfect day out on the water.

Freshwater meets saltwater in the brackish marshes just south of New Orleans, creating an ideal location for redfish and speckled trout. Head down to Venice for an angler’s adventure while fishing for blue marlin, red snapper, and wahoo.
