It’s spring and that means 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 stock adult-sized river catfish. With 17 locations spread throughout Louisiana, you’ll have a great chance to partake in the bite of spring. Sites must be supplied the week of March 28. To view the full supply 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.

Remember, all anglers 16 and older must have a Louisiana fishing license when fishing in 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 access to fishing and boating, fishing programs, and fisheries education and management.

Go out and fish! The program aims to increase the number of people with access to quality fishing. The program aims 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 [email protected]

The LDWF Get Out and Fish is organized in collaboration with the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation (LAWFF). The Foundation was established to help develop and support LDWF’s education and research programs with additional resources developed at its own facilities. Encouraging support for LDWF programs is the Foundation’s primary goal, accomplished by connecting people and businesses to Louisiana’s natural resources. For more information, visit www.lawff.org.
