The Red River Waterway Commission has reopened the majority of the public boat ramps along the Red River now that water levels have started to recede. 

The docks located at the North Caddo and Teague Parkway Recreation Areas remain closed until cleanup is completed. 

In addition, the downstream ramp at the Teague Parkway Recreation Area in Bossier City and the boat ramp at the Brouillette Recreation Area in Avoyelles Parish are closed because of current construction projects at these sites. 

Boaters should use caution when launching into the current and be highly aware of obstacles such as trees and sandbars while navigating the river.

The Red River Waterway Commission observes defined river stages within its district to determine the status of public boat ramps.
