Mississippi River near Baton Rouge
We went fishing a couple of times this week near Darrow. Caught an 9 lb flattie, an 8 lb and two 5 lb bluecats. Unfortunately, there is no place to put a boat in between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. The Donaldsonville ramp is completely silted in and that is the only one there is that I am aware of. We used to put in at a stevedore company near Darrow and it has now been posted, With the water so low (9 ft at Baton Rouge) it would have been impossibleto launch and recover anyway. It is a shame to have one of the best fisheries in the country and have no boat access to it. Over the last 7 years we have caught thousands of catfish there and apparently this is all over! What a bummer! The bank fishing was ok but lots of tiny bait stealing cats are all over.

Louisiana Sucks almost as much as Misipy.
purchase a strip of land and build your own. That would open up another can of worms altogether because of the silt one would have to also need
equipment to keep the ramp clean.
