SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Two of the Red River boat ramps in Caddo Parish are opening in time for Labor Day weekend.

Sheriff Steve Prator says the North Caddo Highway 2 boat ramp along with the Bossier Teague Parkway ramp opened Thursday.

The Bishop Point ramp in south Caddo Parish was opened last week. Prator, in a news release, said the Stoner ramp will remain closed until further notice.

Bossier Parish Sheriff Julian Whittington urged fishermen and outdoor enthusiasts to have fun, but be cautious.

Marine Patrol Capt. Donnie Keith says sandbars in the river have moved so boaters must be careful and wear life jackets.

He says the trails remain closed because of sinkholes left by flooding in June.
