Download Fishing Guide/Map
The fishing opportunities in Louisiana's Outback are almost too numerous to relate - and it is the activity that is the most accessible to the most people.
Your major choice is between freshwater or saltwater fishing. After that, you must decide if you want to fish from a boat or the shore. Surf fishing is excellent along the beaches and there are plenty of waterways along the Creole Nature Trail perfect for dropping a line.
