Fishing / Boating

Cameron Parish offers excellent saltwater and freshwater fishing. With 619 square miles of water, the locations to go fishing are endless. Surf fishing is excellent along the miles of beaches on the Louisiana coast and state records are often set by those fishing from boats in Cameron Parish.

Everyone must possess a valid recreational license for freshwater fishing, while saltwater fishing requires both a saltwater and freshwater fishing license. For more information on fishing licenses click here.
