Description

Pointe-aux-Chenes WMA is mostly marsh, varying from intermediate to brackish and interspersed with numerous ponds, bayous, and canals. The only timber stands are located on the Point Farm Unit of the area and on areas adjacent to natural bayous and older oil and gas canals.

LDWF manages the property through water control, mainly using variable crested weirs and levees, to increase productivity of the marshes for furbearers, waterfowl, alligators, and fish.

Activities and Amenities

Hunting and trapping: Available game species include waterfowl, deer, rabbit, squirrel, rails, gallinules, and snipe. There is also an annual youth deer lottery hunt on the WMA. See regulations for details.

Fishing and boating: Recreational fishing on Pointe-aux-Chenes WMA is excellent for inland saltwater fish species, crabs, and shrimp. Freshwater fish are available in the more northern portions of the WMA. See regulations for details.

Camping: There is a tent-only campground along Hwy 665, north of the headquarters area.

Directions

Pointe-aux-Chenes WMA is located about 15 miles southeast of Houma. Access to the interior is typically limited to boats due to the lack of roads. There are boat launches into the interior on Island Rd and Hwy 665, south of the headquarters area.
