Officials ban fishing in parts of Assumption Parish after high water reports

Local News

People who enjoy the Sportsman’s Landing at the Bayou Corne in Assumption Parish aren’t allowed to get on their boats and fish because of the high water levels.

The call comes after officials announced the Morganza Spillway may open in two weeks.

The sign reads:

All parish waterways are closed for recreational fishing due to high water.

Activities prohibited also include poker runs and bass fishing tournaments.

There is no word on when it will re-open but people can get a ticket if they are seen boating on closed waterways.
