Tie one on…a fly, that is!

You don’t see many fly fishermen around the lake at D’Arbonne, but our parish and area are full of bayous, rivers and lakes that are perfect for fly fishing. If you’d like to learn more about how, when, where and why you should fly fish, there’s a good chance for you on Friday, Sept. 19 … Continue reading

Whop…whop….

Okay, all you dove hunters out there who spent parts of this weekend shooting up two 24-count boxes of shells at fast-flying doves trying to get a limit of 15 doves….

The river: keeping a promise

The list of people who have kept watch over the Ouachita River environment is long…too long to put here. Some like Dr. Michael Caire of West Monroe and Jim Hall of Ruston, who founded SORE (Save the Ouachita River Environment) in the 1980’s, are near the top of the list. Numerous state Wildlife and Fisheries … Continue reading

Mollicy: A magnificent turnaround

Stopping the channelization of the Ouachita River was a huge environmental victory 30 years ago. Today, man’s part of another huge environmental project with future benefits we can’t even fully comprehend has been completed. It’s an amazing project. Last Thursday, water flowed down Mollicy Bayou and into the Ouachita River for the first time in … Continue reading

NWTF: Putting words into action

I don’t turkey hunt. Somehow I’ve escaped the fever in my 50+ years of outdoor pursuits. But I do have great respect for those that do turkey hunt. It’s a challenging, one-on-one sport. And I have even more respect for those who put their love into action to help preserve and maintain the sport. Among … Continue reading

Live like it’s Little League

I love watching the Little League World Series. As a former Little Leaguer myself (some of you are having a good laugh trying to picture that….) I played right field wearing No. 7 for Green Brothers Dairy and also as an adult coached youth baseball for more than a decade. I had my fair share … Continue reading

Bassin’ with George….or John Brown?

My fishing buddy George and I hit Lake D’Arbonne in search of summertime largemouth bass a couple of days ago. Anybody can catch fish on topwaters at daylight or on a worm right before dark, so we weren’t challenged by that. So we went at 2 p.m. in the middle of August in an East … Continue reading

D’Arbonne Dynasty goes viral

8.5 million people. That’s the average number of fans who watch Duck Dynasty every Wednesday night. Hey, Jack. I’ve been busy trying to promote Lake D’Arbonne for the past two years through this website and organizations like the Union Parish Tourist Commission have been doing it for years. So have many other groups and individuals. … Continue reading

There’s treasure behind that green worm spit…

Way back when, my dad and one of his fishing partners, Tom Guthrie, didn’t share much in common. What they did share was the love of fishing, dad’s 12-foot aluminum boat and Mr. Tom’s catalpa tree. All my memories here are not favorable. I used to hate to “pick” catalpa worms. But I loved to … Continue reading
