Catfish Cove

Category:

Hunting/ Fishing

Organization/ Department:

MWR

Description:

Fort Polk youngsters have their very own fishing' hole named Catfish Cove. Catfish Cove is regularly stocked with feisty channel cats just so the kids can catch them and take them home for dinner. You need to go out with your child; unaccompanied adults must find other fishing' holes. (Hint: see the information on the Marion Bonner Trail!) This spot is for small fry only! Shaded parking, pavilions and picnic facilities are readily available on shore. Sidewalks to the bridge make shore fishing a real pleasure for all youngsters under the age of 16. On the west end of the Cove, a raised walkway gives a fine view of the fountain, which is both decorative and functional. Come on out and drop a line! Target Audience: Kids under the age of 16.
