Oct. 30, 2018 - The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) has closed several roads to vehicle traffic at the Richard K. Yancey Wildlife Management Area (WMA) due to flooding, including Union Point Road, Lincecum Road, Blackhawk Road and Blackhawk Boat Launch.
In addition to these roads, several ATV trails have also been closed, including Jacks Bayou ATV Trail, Lincecum ATV Trail and Blackhawk ATV trail.
While the WMA will remain open, users are asked to comply with road and ATV trail closures deemed necessary to ensure safety and prevent road damage. Once the water recedes, LDWF will reopen these roads and trails when conditions are deemed safe for travel.
Richard K. Yancey WMA is located approximately 35 miles south of Ferriday on Louisiana Highway 15 in lower Concordia Parish.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is charged with managing and protecting Louisiana's abundant natural resources. For more information, visit us at www.wlf.la.gov.
