Dularge fishing: question about Lost Lake

Reply
Fishing in Dularge lately has been very good recently with the cold weather and now with some warmer weather approaching I am excited about what Spring time has to bring for down there. Most of the fishing I have been doing has been on the Eastern region of Dularge. Launching at Jugs and fishing bayous and canals anywhere from the Eastern end of Lake Mechant, mud Lake, and around the Bayou Saveur area. I do a lot of sightfishing for redfish during the late summer around Lost Lake and Lake Carencro in the surrounding duck ponds. I always see far fewer boats in these areas when I am out there. I have to think that these areas just don't get as much fishing pressure especially this time of year. I am fishing saturday and am planning on trying to find some good canals on the south end of Lost Lake.

Do any of ya'll have any experience fishing this area during the winter months and early spring like it is now?? I am hoping to find some good canals for trout fishing. I am going to start at Rice Bayou, and make my way East fishing areas such as Eagle Bayou, Eagle Lake, and Lake Pagie. I have never fished these areas before But I am just looking to explore a little and hopefully find some new areas with not as much fishing pressure. Very happy with the results we have been having lately around Lake Mechant but I'm eager for a day of exploration. Let me know if any of you guys have any experience fishing these areas this time of year

Rice bayou dumping into the lake is a good place when the water is moving either way. It will be low tied in the morning and there is a reason why they call it Lost Lake. If the tide is coming in anchor on the point and fish a top water popper blue top and silver bottom. If the fish are there you will not be able to get the smile off your face. Good luck.

Thanks man I appreciate the info I will definately give it a shot. Hopefully we come back with a nice mess of fish from some new areas. What did you mean when you said, there is a reason they call it Lost Lake....? Ive been around there a lot during the summer I am sorta familiar with running around out there. Hopefully things go well and as planned. I will let ya'll know how I do and what areas we caught in!

I fish the area frequently and there are many of places to fish. Any cut drawing the marsh into the lake usually holds fish with the tide falling. The bad thing about this time if year is lack of water. Last weekend we had to pull a boat off a mudflat and the boat we pulled off had already pulled someone else off. So just be careful and make sure you know where you are so you don't get stuck. Like you said not many people fish that area so u may not see anyone if you were to get stranded.

The lack of water this time of the year is the reason.

I fish the lost lake area often, but I am definitely no expert. I find that it is a much better in transition months. Caught the first specks of the year there in Late September, but since the cold weather has set in I haven't been very successful in Lost Lake.
Good Luck out there.
