We post any fly fishing events in Louisiana, and any full-day events outside the state within 7 hours of a population center (eg, Slidell, Lake Charles, Shreveport).  Kayak fishing events in Louisiana only.  If you know of a qualifying event, please check our Calendar page to see if it's listed.  If not, or if the date and location are incorrect, please email me at catch(at)laflyfish(dot)com.

There are several other events we expect to be announced late December or early January, mostly kayak fishing tournaments, kayak demo days, and CCA seminars.

We accept event submissions at any time for our calendar. However, event managers know that early announcement leads to better attendance. For this reason, please submit as early as possible.
