Red River Waterway Commission reopens area boat ramps
Natchitoches, Louisiana - The Red River Waterway Commission has reopened the public boat ramps in Caddo and Bossier Parishes now that water levels have started to recede. The North Caddo boat ramp remains closed at this time for cleaning and repairs.
Boaters should use caution when launching into the current and be highly aware of obstacles such as trees and sandbars while navigating the river.
Additional cleaning and repairs on the docks may be necessary to accommodate the launching process. Boaters may experience delays in launching caused by temporary closures of the ramps during these periods. Cooperation from boaters is appreciated during the clean-up efforts.
The Red River Waterway Commission observes defined river stages within its district to determine the status of public boat ramps.
