Here’s what you need to fish in City Park, courtesy of the City Park website: To fish in City Park, you need a valid freshwater fishing license from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. No fishing is allowed on golf courses or in areas with active construction. No person may place their own boat in the park waterways. The park encourages anglers to catch and release fish. There are many great fishing spots in the Park. Most people who fish won’t share their great secret places to fish! But we’ve seen many people fishing behind the Casino Building, up and down Bayou Metairie, in Big Lake, off the Fishing Pier on Marconi Avenue, and in the water ways in Couturie Forest. If conditions are right and you’re patient, you could catch a fish and have a great fish tale to tell.
