April 12, 2016 - The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has reopened all roads in the Pearl River Wildlife Management Area (WMA) and the Pearl River-Honey Island Shooting Range, located in the Pearl River WMA, will open Friday as scheduled.
The Pearl River-Honey Island Shooting Range is opened weekends; Friday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
Flooding on the Pearl River caused the WMA to close on March 13 when the flood gauge on the river reached 16.5 feet, initiating an automatic benchmark closure set by the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission.
All roads have been inspected and are safe for travel.
The Pearl River WMA, which consists of 35,618 acres, is located approximately six miles east of Slidell and approximately one mile east of Pearl River.
