Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries

Posted: Apr 28, 2021 4:07 PM

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) has closed the Pearl River Wildlife Management Area in St. Tammany Parish due to flooding. The Pearl River flood gauge has reached 16.5 feet, triggering the closure, which is an automatic benchmark set by the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission.

The gate at the entrance to the WMA on Old Highway 11 is closed and locked. This gate will remain closed until the river recedes below 16.5 feet and the roads have been inspected. Included in the closure is the Pearl River-Honey Island Shooting Range, located in the Pearl River WMA.

The Pearl River WMA, which consists of 35,618 acres, is located approximately six miles east of Slidell and approximately one mile east of Pearl River.

For information on this WMA, go to https://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/page/pearl-river or contact Bradley Breland at bbreeland@wlf.la.gov or 985-543-4777.
