Pearl River WMA expected to close April 13 due to flooding, LDWF Announces

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) will close the Pearl River Wildlife Management Area (WMA) in St. Tammany Parish when the Pearl River flood gauge reaches 16.5 feet, which is expected Tuesday (April 13). The closure is an automatic benchmark set by the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission.

The gate at the entrance to the WMA on Old Highway 11 will be closed and locked.  It will remain closed until the river recedes below 16.5 feet and the roads have been  inspected. Included in the closure is the Pearl River-Honey Island Shooting Range, located in the Pearl River WMA.

The Pearl River WMA, which consists of 35,618 acres, is located approximately six miles east of Slidell and approximately one mile east of Pearl River. For information on this WMA, go to https://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/page/pearl-river or contact Bradley Breland at bbreeland@wlf.la.gov or 985-543-4777.
