About the Louisiana Coast
At the end of the Mississippi River, stretching from the marshes and bayous of Louisiana into the northern waters of the Gulf of Mexico is a fisherman's paridise. The Louisiana coastline is often compared to some of the world’s most famous fishing charter destinations such as Hawaii, the Bahamas, and Costa Rica because if it's rich fishing population and varied habitats. Miles of winding shores, a scattered network of offshore oil rigs, extreme depths and a nutrient driven Mississippi River delta, the Louisiana coastline has been called one the most prolific fisheries in the world.
A few hours by boat into the Gulf of Mexico, southeast of New Orleans, are the Chandeleur Islands. This chain of uninhabited barrier islands stretches over 50 miles and is a hotbed for hundreds of species of fish. Chandeleur is part of the Breton National Wildlife Refuge, designated in 1904 by Theodore Roosevelt, the second oldest wildlife refuge in the United States
Join Backwoods to experience the Louisiana coastline and surrounding areas on one of many adventures. Go fishing on a multi-day stay aboard a mothership at Chandeleur on a Chandeleur Islands Fishing Trip. Or explore the bayous and marshes close to shore for some of the largest bull reds you'll find on a Cocodrie Louisiana Fly Fishing Trip.
