Southwest Louisiana is well known for having some of the finest inshore and coastal fishing available on the Gulf Coast. Fishing in the Calcasieu Estuary, which includes the Calcasieu River and Ship Channel from Lake Charles to the Gulf of Mexico, is a unique experience that you won't soon forget. Nationally heralded as a trophy trout paradise, Calcasieu Lake is the center of one of the Gulf of Mexico's most prolific estuaries.
There are many species of fish available in the Calcasieu Estuary. The most sought after inshore gamefish are the speckled trout, redfish and flounder. Other available species include black drum, sand trout, sheepshead, croakers, and ladyfish. In addition, there are many more gamefish species available along the Southwest Louisiana coastline or at the near shore oil platforms, including bull redfish, cobia, tripletail, spanish and king mackeral, pompano, bluefish, snapper, jack crevalle and sharks to name a few.
