"On This Farm There are Some Fish"

Shepherd's Acadiana Fish Hatchery and Fishing Club

 Acadiana Fish Hatchery, is Acadiana’s source for game fish pond stocking. We are Acadiana’s premier source of largemouth bass, coppernose bluegill, hybrid coppernose bluegill, redear bream, native bluegill bream, giant Florida hybrid bream, and fathead minnows. We have been stocking ponds in Louisiana since 1994. With 20 years of experience we feel that we have both the knowledge and expert advice to offer to our customers; helping you have the best fishing experience possible in your own backyard lake or pond. Our fish are hatched and raised in our 40 ponds right here in Acadiana! Put an end to your days of catch-less fishing!

Easy access for Bass boat, Kayak, and Fly Fishing

  Twenty-five years ago, frustrated because of the lack of good fishing in public waters; we decided to build a private fishing lake to end the frustration. Now, twenty-five years later, we have built a total of 9 fishing lakes and ponds producing some of the best fishing you will find anywhere. These private lakes are loaded with fish waiting to be caught. We now have the best year round Kayak and Fly Fishing for Largemouth Bass and Monster Bluegill Bream in the State! We are located just 50 minutes from Baton Rouge, 90 minutes from Alexandria, an hour from Lake Charles, and two hours from New Orleans! Thousands of bream and bass have been caught by our members since 1992; with some bream weighing over 2 pounds and bass up to 10 pounds!

Unbeatable boat and bank fishing for all ages

  Selling private memberships only, guarantees a never crowded fishing experience for the entire family. Your kids and grandkids will catch fish like pros; some easily catching more fish in one day than they have caught in their entire lives. On the best fishing days, two guys in a boat have caught over 100 bass! On some trips, bream fishermen have caught ice chests full of bream all weighing over 1 pound! It is not unusual for a family to catch over 100 bream in a day.

Why travel to Toledo Bend or Lake Fork with all this action just minutes from Lafayette? Private fishing leases are limited, so act fast to avoid a waiting list.
