Fishing unaffected, guides not so lucky
Fishing has been largely unaffected by the Katrina and Rita storm surges. If anything, the two surges have improved the trout season. Guide Bill Lake, of Houma, is says, “I stay pretty busy in the winter months, but this year I have been inundated with calls from the east and west of us. All their infrastructure was wiped out. The fish are there, but there are no boat docks, no motels and most of the guide services were wiped out. There are probably 250 guides in Louisiana out of work right now.
