Mill Creek Reservior – Little but loud!

Article Image Alt Text

Louisiana, the Sportsman’s Paradise, is a state known for great hunting and fishing. With a number of wildlife management areas open to the public, hunters have no reason to complain about having no place to hunt.

Ditto for the fishing. From coastal areas bordering the Gulf to a jillion lakes, rivers, bayous and ponds, you don’t have to look far to find a place to wet a hook. Some of the impoundments are massive; some are tiny.

Take Toledo Bend, for example. Covering some 185,000 acres of water, no other lake in the state can compare size-wise. At the other end of the spectrum there is tiny 560 acre Mill Creek Reservoir located just outside the village of Saline in Bienville Parish. Putting a pencil to it, it would take 330.35 Mill Creeks to fill massive Toledo Bend. Even so, Mill Creek has, without fanfare, kept quite a few folks happy since it’s birth in 1971 when Mill Creek was impounded to create this little piece of Heaven.
