Calcasieu Lake - Big Lake

3955 Henry Pugh Rd, Lake Charles, LA

Ahead you'll have the opportunity to turn east on LA 384 and drive over to Hebert's Landing on Lake Calcasieu, also known by locals as Big Lake. The marina at Hebert's Landing is the primary access point along the east shore for fishing and hunting on the lake. You can find professional guides and vacation rentals in Hebert's Landing, but be sure to stock up on your food, bait and other outdoor supplies on your way as these items are currently not available at the lake. Fishing in this large, but shallow, lake is excellent, particularly for trophy-sized speckled trout, many  commonly weighing  5-8 pounds.  Redfish, black drum and flounder can also be caught in good numbers. Calcasieu Lake is truly a sportsman’s paradise and Hebert’s Landing is a great way to access it.
