No specifics were provided as to the canals and bayous included in the closure, which went into effect at 5:30 a.m. and will remain in effect until further notice. However, Coast Guard Lt. Jim McMenemy told LouisianaSportsman.com that the specific closures could change as the situation changes.
"A canal might be closed now and opened later, or open now and closed later," McMenemy said.
Current information will be available on Channel 16, but McMenemy said anglers should watch for boom.
"If you see a boom, it's recommended not to go in (the waterway)," he said.
