New Orleans, Louisiana Redfish Fly Fishing | November – March
Experience the Louisiana marsh with Louisiana fly fishing guide Capt. Jeremy Chavez. Land of the Giants, the Louisiana marsh’s aptly coined moniker, is known for its expansive marshes that boast some of the world’s largest redfish and black drum. The fall and winter months are the best time of year to target trophy size fish. Shots at fish in the 20-30lb range are common with possibilities of fish pushing into the 40-60lb class. The Louisiana marsh is a short drive from fine cuisine and vibrant nightlife of downtown New Orleans, Louisiana. All things considered, the Louisiana marsh is unquestionably the best redfish fishery on the planet.
