bayou des mats

I was in Lacombe today in Bayou Des Mats. There are a lot of no trespassing signs in there. Does anyone know if this area is fishable? I'd like to be able to paddle thru to get to the bayou that leads to Lake Ponchartrain to the west.

More than likely you were on private property and the Prieto family does still own a considerable portion of that marsh most likely exactly where ya were.I know of another family that has some sliver of private land,just not exactly sure where his piece of private land is.There is plenty of fishable waters NOT on private land,just take a look at Google Maps and the Big Branch Refuge might have a laminated map for sale that clearly outlines the Refuge boundaries with the private in-holdings likewise outlined.Hope dat helps.
