2 wildlife management areas re-open in northeast Louisiana
BATON ROUGE - Two wildlife management areas in northeast Louisiana have re-opened, nearly a month after flooding led to their being closed.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries said in a news release Thursday it has reopened Bayou Macon and Big Lake Wildlife Management Areas.
Some roadways - Mill Road, the Hog Lake Trail, and Little Lake Trail at the Big Lake wildlife area - remain closed, however. They will re-open after flood waters have cleared and they can be inspected and deemed safe.
Both management areas were closed March 17 due to severe flooding.
