    About Lake Saint Catherine
    Between Two Major Lakes

    Lake Saint Catherine is a brackish-water lake located in eastern Orleans Parish, which means it is just inside the New Orleans city limits.

    This lake rests between the two larger lakes, Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Borgne, two out of three of the state's largest lakes.

    Lake Saint Catherine is conveniently located near New Orleans and the outlet into the Gulf of Mexico.

    Enjoy Recreation on Three Lakes

    Boating, fishing, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, and other water sports can be enjoyed on Lake Saint Catherine and its neighbors.

    Lake Pontchartrain is the largest lake in Louisiana and encompasses 630 square miles. This lake is technically an estuary because it is open to the Gulf of Mexico and has a mix of salt and freshwater. It is the perfect place to observe marine life, birds and catch a variety of fish due to its shallow waters. You can even sight dolphins, sharks, and other unique ocean life at times. The lake is open to swimming, fishing, boating, and other recreation.

    Lake Borgne is a lagoon of the Gulf of Mexico to the east of Lake Michoud. It is connected to Lake Pontchartrain via The Rigolets. It is the third-largest lake in Louisiana and can be excellent for a year-round fishing spot for anglers.

    The Rigolets Marina has been described as an excellent fishing spot due to the bridge and natural reefs' environment.
