The 2019-2020 season is looking to be a good one, compared to the recent seasons we have been having. Because of historic flooding, many farmers in states north of us have just started harvesting their crops, or still haven't started. Decreasing the food source coming from these planted fields, in theory, will allow the ducks to migrate south quicker in hopes of finding new food sources. We won't know until the season starts, but this news should leave Louisiana hunters optimistic for what is coming.

You may be able to catch a few perch, bream, or catfish but the bass fishing is not ideal. Also, the lake is considerably low, and the only areas with substantial water is the canal leading into the lake.

Look guys, I understand that the recent seasons are nothing like it was in the past, and hot cropping has had a significant impact on the ducks that migrate here to Louisiana. However, due to the flooding across the United States, many of these 'hot crops' will not be available this year. Farmers are not able to harvest their crops, which leaves them with no open space or spread out corn to hunt over. Charts show that the number of harvested crops this year is nearly 1/4 of what it normally is. This doesn't mean that the upcoming season is going to compare to what it may have been in the 80s and 90s, but it may be slightly better than the past few years. For younger hunters like me, this brings optimism, as I never experienced hunting back in the 'glory days' and can't compare now to then.
