It’s springtime and that means the fishing is heating up! Be sure to get out and fish at one of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries’ Get Out and Fish! sites across the state where LDWF will be stocking adult-sized channel catfish. With 17 sites stocked throughout Louisiana, you’ll have a great chance to get in on the spring bite. Sites are scheduled to be stocked the week of March 28. To view the full stocking schedule and find a location near you, visit www.wlf.la.gov/gof. Stay up to date with stockings, park events and more on Facebook and Instagram: @ldwfgetoutandfish.
Please remember, all anglers 16 and older must possess a Louisiana fishing license when fishing in any Louisiana public waters. Licenses are available for purchase online at https://louisianaoutdoors.com/licenses-and-permits. By purchasing a fishing license, Louisiana receives matching funds from the Sport Fish Restoration Program for public fishing and boating access, fishing programs and education and fisheries management.
The Get Out and Fish! Program seeks to increase the number of people with access to quality fishing. The program intends to recruit new anglers to the sport of fishing and promote outdoor activities for future generations. For more information visit www.wlf.la.gov/gof or email us at GOF@wlf.la.gov.
The LDWF Get Out and Fish is hosted in conjunction with the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation (LAWFF). The Foundation was formed to help expand and support LDWF education and research programs with additional resources developed through its own facilities. Encouraging support for LDWF programs is the major focus of the Foundation, accomplished by connecting people and businesses with Louisiana’s natural resources.
