2023 Mixed Bag kicks off January 1st

Our Mixed Bag Contest is back for a seventh year! The MBC kicks off Sunday, January 1st at 12:01am. If last year is any indication, expect at least 2 or 3 members to be out on opening day to nab a few entries for the contest.

Mixed Bag is a members-only, months-long tournament where the goal is to catch as many different species on fly rod. It's CPRE which means catch-photo-release encouraged. And best of all, there is no entry fee.  You only need to be a 2023 paid member of Kisatchie Fly Fishers.

For all the details on how to submit an entry, go to our "Mixed Bag" webpage.  If you're on Facebook, go to our Kisatchie Fly Fishers Members Share page and share photos of your catch as well.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy New Year!

Here's wishing our members and friends, and all of their families, a most blessed holiday season. Hope everyone finds something under the Christmas tree they can use for their piscatorial pursuits in the coming year.

While Christmas is a season of festivity, let's not forget the reason for the season: “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us….” John 1:14. Please be giving to those in need, and pray for those who are less fortunate, for those in suffering, and for those away from their families this season.

We also wish everyone a prosperous and healthy New Year.  The new year brings many traditional club activities, in addition to our monthly meetings. In March, we have our annual Spring Picnic and Little Mo Rainbow Coalition trip, our Fly Fishing 101 in April, and our annual Summer Workshop.  Being an odd year, our biennial Cenla Fly Fest will not be held (coming back in 2024), but another biennial event - held in odd years - is well worth attending. The New Orleans Fly Fishing Expo takes place January 21st in Metairie. Check it out at
