ST. MARTINVILLE, LA – Attorney General Jeff Landry issued the following statement after the Chauffe-Hebert Family finalized an agreement with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to provide public access to Lake Martin through a boat launch on the Rene and Eliza Chauffe Landing:

“I applaud the Chauffe-Hebert Family for their decision to keep open public entry to Lake Martin. Their resolution not only allows locals and tourists to continue to access the duck hunting, fishing, boating, and birding on the Lake; but it also helps to ensure the wildlife and its habitat remain pristine. I thank Assistant Attorneys General Machelle Hall and Ryan Montegut for their efforts in achieving today’s action.”
