I can't understand how land owners can block off canals that have been dug by the state or the oil feild. That flow with the current when the Locks or open. (Not the tide). Not only,the canals where there a long time before they even own the property. Spacificly the (White Lake Area) Tell me what y'all think.

Think you are two decades late to this party! This has been a running ddispute for years. Basically any water body not mapped by surveyors in the 1800 is considered private property of the owner of the surrounding land. At least with a dredged canal (assuming it wasn't dredged with public funds) there is some logic to it. But much more significant water bodies are often private, such as Four Horse Lake if I recall correctly. This has been a huge source of contention for years but despite a lot of popular support for change the state legislature never addresses it because money is on the side of the private land owners. The catahoula lake issue may lead to a break through but I doubt it.
