Lakes in Louisiana


Passionate about lakes? Indulge yourself: visit Louisiana. Louisiana offers visitors many avenues of outdoor fun to explore - from year-round boating to freshwater and saltwater fishing. The state is probably best known, however, for its phenomenal bass fishing opportunities.

Louisiana's man-made reservoirs are well stocked by the Louisiana State Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. Poverty Point and Toledo Bend, for instance, reservoirs located in northeastern and western Louisiana, respectively, are shallow lakes teeming with exceptionally large bass. In northern Louisiana, Caney Lake is also renowned for its trophy-sized bass. Additionally, the lagoons of New Orleans' City Park are filled with bass. There's no doubt about it - Louisiana is a bass fisher's paradise! Like the Shreveport-Bossier City area, Greater New Orleans often hosts the Bassmaster Classic, an annual fishing competition that, at least for avid anglers, is comparable to the Super Bowl.
