Default Amite River and Bayou Manchac

Anyone ever fish in this area? I can run about 15 minutes up the road and launch close to where the 2 meet. Out here testing out the new pirogue today. Just wondering if there is any good fishing to be had here.

Very rarely. I mean if you gonna catch fish in that area that's prolly the best spot but over all it's very overfished. Tht point has someone on it every single day and there's always another boat screwing around waiting till that one gives up. Upper amite isn't the bet for fishing unless u run trotlines for cats. Where you live? I love right on walker south just below 12

Bayou manchac is a poor choice...

Over flow ponds and drainages north of bayou manchac are spot on though

Is Manchac just over fished or somethin? Seems like it would be good.

I'll have to check out some of those ponds and drainages I guess.

Makes sense. In my limited experience with the Bayou its become obvious that many of the residents are not concerned with the quality of it. Its a shame really, with the historical significance of it. It could be a really nice place.
