We have had a challenging week on the bayou this week!! The weather here in Hopedale, Louisiana has been as crazy as the fishing was last week! Unfortunately the weather has not been in our favor. Multiple cold fronts have pushed down this week with lots of rain and winds. We had to cancel a good number of trips and was also able to squeeze some trips in between the storms! If the wind let us get out and do our job we caught plenty of fish on the outside, if the winds were up we stayed in the marsh and picked at easy limits of redfish.
The fishing has stayed good on the up side even with the weather, on the down side with all the rain and change of winds the MS river has rose and we are seeing the start of river water flooding parts of our estuary. It amazing how fast things change in south LA, one week we are excited about lower river water and plenty of good health salty water and just a week later we are dealing with flooding rain and high river water. The future forecast is predicting a quick river drop so I expect in the next week or so when the weather settles down the river will recede and we should be back to our post storm fishing pattern.
We still have a few days available for the up coming months if you would like to fish with Hopedale most experienced guide service and stay at our first class lodge give us a call!! We guarantee plenty of fishing catching and a great time while doing it!!
