Road closures on Big Lake WMA

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) has closed Big Lake Road & Fina Road on Big Lake Wildlife Management Area (WMA) due to flooding effective immediately.

Road closures are deemed necessary to ensure safety and prevent road damage. Once the water recedes, LDWF will inspect, repair and reopen those roads when it is determined they are safe for travel.

Big Lake WMA, which consists of 19,231 acres, is located in Franklin, Madison and Tensas parishes approximately 12 miles east of Gilbert.
