The city of Lake Charles is rich with famous water ways! Lake Charles is a major industrial, cultural, and educational center in the southwest region of the state. Prien Lake, Lake Charles, and the Calcasieu River are all ripe with fun, family friendly activities. Looking to land the lunker of a lifetime, or to take the family on a guided eco tour? Maybe you prefer to unwind with a sunset lake cruise? Well Lake Charles has that and much more to explore!
Located only 30 miles from the Gulf and having access to some of the most prolific brackish lakes in the area, Lake Charles boasts an incredible variety of productive fisheries. In addition to Lake Charles, Prien Lake, and the Calcasieu River, Lake Charles fishing guides might also take you to the famous Calcasieu Lake (also known as the “Big Lake” locally), Calcasieu Ship Channel, Black Lake, and Moss Lake. These prolific waters are all about light tackle fishing for Speckled Trout and Redfish throughout the year, but you also have a chance at reeling in Flounder, Sheepshead, Tripletail, Black Drum, and Cobia, depending on the season. Testing the bite of various Lake Charles fishing spots will definitely be something to write home about.
