Cow Island Lake

What stage at Butte Larose do you use to gain access into Cow Island Lake? How do you get in there? I haven't been in there in years. Any help is appreciated.

13.4 with a flatboat and 14 foot for a bass style boat . Launch at Butte Larose. Go bout 4 miles south. Look for a small cut on the right. Go into that cut, and not far don that cut is a small cut to the right. There is a lil dam not far up that cut. Make sure you pay attention, because it's easy to forget where you came in at after you are in the lake. I have been many times and alays seem to lose track of where the exit is once im in there fishing.

Can you get to cow island if youre launching under the interstate in henderson? If so, what hazards should i know of on this route?

No you cant launch at Henerson. There is a levee in between Henderson and there. You have to exit at Butte Larose and take the highway south until you get to the launch into the river.

Is this not a possible route (see pink trail) with the high water we have right now? The weir circled in green is the only thing im worried about.

Hmmm. We i guess you can. I never have. I thought there was a levee seperating Henderson from the rest of the basin. I always launched in Butte Larose. Seems lke a long way to go rather than just launching in Butte Larose. Its a nice launch. No 'hidden' things on the route
