Latest Fishing Report

So far 2020 has been good fishing between fronts.  We experienced our best fall 2019 flounder run that I can remember.  The flounder have never quit biting and it's late February.  We had a four man limit today.  Trout have been hit and miss this winter as expected.  It's now time to put on your waders and ease out of the boat in search of a big girl.  The next six weeks should produce some good ones.  Smaller trout will continue to rise in numbers as water temperatures increase.  If we can survive the spring without a major flood, we can expect a great year here on Calcasieu Lake.
