Hows Sorrel/Pigeon Looking?

Went out to scout a launch outside of White Castle last Friday afternoon and decided to take the long way down LA 404 to check out the launch in Bayou Sorrel. The launch was packed and steady filling up with people launching. Just wondering if there was a tournament or if the water has finally gotten back right?

Water WAS dropping over the weekend. A slight rise starting today. Some are/were catching, many not so well. Looking at your log book and water levels should give you a good clue. No log book, time to start one.

I've been doing a lot of reading on bass fishing since I'm pretty new to this. If I have read about a log book I don't remember, but I'll look into it. Talked to my neighbor who's works shift work (gets to fish during the week) and he scouted Monday morning and fished yesterday morning and said it was slow except for about a 100 yard stretch where he caught all his fish for the day. He ended up with 6-7 keepers and a few too small to keep.

Lots of bad water coming out of the swamp.
It is falling really fast and have had some fish kills with the low oxygen.
If you can find good water - seems to be producing.

Thanks TC
I managed to get to take a vacation day last Tuesday and the bass weren't on that much but the bream were biting like crazy. I talked to my neighbor again and he said I was in the Green Field area. Im not familiar with the names of different sections in the basin just yet. Caught 30-40 bream had a dozen or so keepers. Too many small catfish to count (3 keepers) 3 keeper bass and a sac-a-lait. Better than any day at work for sure

I have never heard of the Green Field area.
Did he mean Shell Fields - It is that maze of canals close to Sorrel.

You leave the Sorrel landing headed north then take the first canal to the left. Stay right to head toward the concrete platforms. Pass that and head west toward berry lake and turn right to head north up berry lake. Pass the double pipeline canals and there was is a cut that brings you to a canal that runs east-west. The far eastern side has a 15ft high 'dam' that blocks the main canal you launch at. Maybe it is called something else. I'm not real sure
