All roads on Big Lake WMA closed

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) has closed all roads on Big Lake Wildlife Management Area (WMA) due to flooding.

Once the water recedes, LDWF will inspect, repair and reopen these roads once they are determined to be 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.
