Boat Landings & Waterways

Waterways are our specialty in Iberville, mainly because we have so many and they are so stunningly beautiful. The parish is split by the mighty Mississippi River, but Iberville also boasts several entrances into the majestic Atchafalaya Basin, along with numerous bayous. The 800,000 acre Atchafalaya Basin is often referred to as the “South’s last wilderness,” and its swampland is home to more than 85 species of fish, 200 species of birds, alligators, black bear and other wildlife. The waterways tell much about our history and lifestyle. You can get up close and personal with our unique waterways via a ride on the ferry across the Mississippi, a picnic at the award-winning Bayou Plaquemine Waterfront Park, a personal boat tour of the Basin, fishing off our bayou banks, or using one of our numerous boat launches. Iberville Parish has been working diligently to protect and restore the water quality of the parish waterways in the Atchafalaya Basin (www.dnr.louisiana.gov/Atchafalaya), the Upper Terrebonne Basin, and the Lake Pontchartrain Basin (www.saveourlake.org). Iberville Parish is also a national affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, so we encourage all boaters to help Keep Iberville Beautiful by properly disposing of your litter. Do like we do, “pack it in, pack it out”. Recreational fishing in Iberville Parish is on fire in the Atchafalaya Basin and other area waterways such as Grand River, Bayou Plaquemine, Bay Natchez, Pat’s Bay, and etc. Bass fishermen have been catching large mouth bass in the Atchafalaya Basin at daylight using topwater baits and during the day using plastic worms on the bottom. The fish are hungry. Low water levels are concentrating bass in the channels near points and run-outs. For local water levels, refer to the Atchafalaya Basin Program (http://www.dnr.louisiana.gov/sec/atchafalaya). Bream and perch continue to feed aggressively on live bait such as night crawlers and crickets around cypress knees, stumps, and fallen dead trees near the banks. White perch, locally called “sac-a-lait” are biting live shiner minnows, artificial jigs, and beetle-spins around fallen willow tree tops and other natural bank structure in the Atchafalaya Basin, Grand River, Ramah Borrow Pit Canals, and Bayou Plaquemine. Channel catfish, bluecats, and flatheads can easily be caught on flowing waterways such as the Atchafalaya River, Grand River, Mississippi River, and the Intracoastal Canal fishing with live night crawlers, live catalpa worms, and/or stink bait on the bottom. Crawfishing prices are falling and the season is winding down.
