I think that Bob Marshall became the outdoors writer for the Times Picayune after HEK left and I believe he may be at NOLA.com or the Advocate or one of them local papers. He may be able too give you a line. I remember reading HEK's book but couldn't tell you the name to save my life!

Here is a part from an old article from 1968. Area is near Oak River and Bayou LaCroix as the map shows. As we all know back in the day before Mardi Gras pass it was a prime-time speckle trout area.
