Sherburne Wildlife Management Area in Louisiana

Trip Overview

Paddled up Bayou Manuel for a couple of hours. Saw a few motorboats with hunters coming out to the boat landing. All were friendly and careful not to hit me with a big wake. They looked at my little Pelican Fusion with curiosity. Relaxing paddle. Pretty trees along the bayou and lots of birds. I've seen alligators up to 13' there in the past, but none this trip.


There is a steep concrete boat launch into the bayou. Nothing else is around. IF YOU GO DURING HUNTING SEASON, WEAR ORANGE!
