BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Southwest Louisiana National Wildlife Refuge Complex annual winter closure to fishing and boating begins one hour after sunset Wednesday.

Sites include the Cameron Prairie National Wildlife Refuge, Gibbstown Unit, Lacassine Pool and designated refuge waters, and the Sabine refuge’s interior marshes and waterways.

The areas will reopen March 15.

Bank fishing will still be available at the Gibbstown Unit, located along Louisiana Highway 27, and Streeter’s Road Fishing Pier in Unit B at Lacassine. Only designated roadside recreation areas along Louisiana 27, south of Hackberry, remain open year round for fishing and crabbing.

The Lacassine pool area and Sabine’s Blue Goose Trail and Wetland Walkway will remain open year round for wildlife observation and photography.
