Trout fishingTruly a part of the Sportsman's Paradise, Southwest Louisiana offers fishing year-round!

Freshwater fishing, brackish, and saltwater fishing are all within an easy boat ride from the banks of  Contraband Bayou.

The oyster reefs, channels, and near-shore rigs in the Gulf of Mexico offer multiple opportunities to catch trophy redfish, trout, and flounder.

Calcasieu Lake is recognized by experienced fishermen as a premier Trophy Trout Lake and is considered one of the top Speckled Trout estuaries in the country!

Check out the websites of these fishing guides as listed on the SWLA Convention and Visitor's Bureau page. You'll learn that waterfowl hunters enjoy duck and goose hunting here as there are plentiful mallards, pintails, and teal. Snow, Blue Specklebell and Canada Geese can also be found.

Whether pleasure boating along the Contraband's residential area, kayaking, or paddle boarding, Contraband Bayou offers potential for all things water-based!

Because of its proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, multiple lakes, the Calcasieu River, and English Bayou, Contraband Pointe is strategically located to provide opportunities for commercial enterprises specializing in fishing, hunting, and all things outdoors!

For all the water in Southwest Louisiana, there are minimal retail opportunities or restaurants that can boast they are on the water. With its proximity to I-210, L'Auberge Blvd, and the casinos, Contraband Pointe can be the premier waterfront location to offer both to the Lake area and the thousands who daily visit the casinos.
