Fishing - There is access to the Red River for fishing at the Bayou Pierre Unit and access to Bayou Pierre for fishing at the Spanish Lake Lowlands Unit. Licenses, limits and boating safety requirements are the same as those adopted by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. Please refer to our hunting and fishing brochure found on our website for designated areas and refuge regulations. Currently there is no boat access to refuge waters or boat launches on the refuge.
Hunting – Red River allows hunting for waterfowl, rabbit, squirrel, quail and other small game as well as a bow season for whitetail deer, in designated areas only, at the Bayou Pierre Unit and Spanish Lake Lowlands Unit. Various other hunting regulations and restrictions apply on the refuge and are described in the refuge hunt regulations brochure. The brochure also contains the refuge hunting and fishing permit, which all users are required to sign and carry.
The anticipated construction of our new visitor center will begin in 2009 and should be completed in 2011. There will be several self-guided hiking trails and wildlife viewing areas for the public to enjoy. Red River NWR holds an annual photo contest in conjunction with its Refuge Celebration.
