Louisiana fishing experts said look for steady reds but spotty to widely scattered specks early, turning to steady specks and reds by midway in the season, with heavy downpours of both species possibly late.

In other words, speckled trout fishing might get off to a slow start, but things could be hopping by the end of June, but reds should be biting steady all summer.

Harry Blanchet with the state Department of Wildlife and Fisheries said an exceptionally cold and long winter along with high rivers are going to have an impact on fishing.

"We're likely to see less than average fishing for trout in the spring before things pick up," Blanchet said.
