The Finest Coastal Fishing in Louisiana

Southwest Louisiana is well known for having some of the finest inshore and coastal fishing on the Gulf Coast. Nationally heralded as a trophy trout paradise, Calcasieu Lake is one of the Gulf of Mexico’s most prolific estuaries. The Calcasieu Estuary, including the Calcasieu River and Ship Channel from Lake Charles to the Gulf of Mexico, offers an unforgettable fishing experience.

 

The Calcasieu Estuary offer great fishing for the most sought after inshore game fish on the Gulf Coast.  Speckled trout, redfish and flounder are the most common inshore species targeted, but plenty of other fish species are abundant as well.  Black drum, white trout, tripletail, cobia, spanish and king mackerel, snapper, pompano and sharks can be found along the Southwest Louisiana coastline and near shore oil platforms.
