RED RIVER: HIGH WATER EVENT 2015

The public boat launching ramps (operated by the Red River Waterway Commission) on the Red River are closed due to extremely high water levels. This includes the ramps in Caddo, Bossier, Red River, Natchitoches, Grant, Rapides and Avoyelles Parishes. Additionally, 3 of the 5 Lock and Dam systems on the Red River are also closed to navigation. These include the Joe D. Waggonner Lock at Shreveport, the Russell B. Long Lock at Coushatta, and Lock and Dam #3 at Alexandria.

Heavy rainfall, in the Red River valley, has resulted in increased flows and a rise in the river throughout northeast Texas, southwest Arkansas and Louisiana. As a result, the docks, which are a vital part of safely launching a boat into the river, will remain under water over the next few weeks. Launching a boat into the swift current, with floating debris, is not recommended during this period of high water.
