A log jam on the Red River in Louisiana created the original Lake Bistineau; but, the lake drained when the jam was dredged. In 1942, the government decided to construct a permanent dam, resulting in Lake Bistineau. This reservoir is long and narrow, and extends across three parishes in the northwest part of the state. The lake is lined with old cypress tress draped with Spanish Moss. Water skiers can enjoy the open waters, while anglers can cast for a record bass in the coves and fingers of this fourteen-mile-long lake.

Boaters have access to several boat ramp launches located around this lake. Lake Bistineau State Park offers two ramps, and boaters can take the 527 junction at Taylor to gain mid-lake access at the Plum Orchard or Green Park ramps. Western access includes Grice's landing near the dam or Port-O'-Bistineau in Sibley. While there is plenty of open water in this lake, be aware of water-covered cypress stumps near shorelines. Boat lanes have been cut through some of the more heavily wooded areas and some areas are marked with numbered signs, making it easier to reach open water.
