Green Acres Fishing Lodge is family owned and operated. When you visit Green Acres you become part of the family, so don't be surprised if we ask you to join us for a cold drink, a slice of watermelon, or even some smores during your stay.
Just to give you a little background on us, I was born in Bossier City, LA at Barksdale AFB, and my wife Lisa is from Cape Girardeau, MO. We have been married for 28 years and before moving to Toledo Bend we lived in southern Louisiana for over 10 years in Mandeville (near New Orleans). We moved to Toledo Bend in 2009 to "retire" and enjoy the fishing and boating here on the lake. Lisa is a great cook but we both miss some of the great restaurants in New Orleans.
We have two boys; our first born is Nathan (a.k.a. Rooster) who is the name sake for the "Rooster's Roost" facility. Nathan attended LSU/Baton Rouge and finished his BSN degree in May 2013 at the LSU Health Sciences Center, School of Nursing in New Orleans. He is currently an RN in the ER at West Jeff Hospital in New Orleans. Our second born is Jason (a.k.a. Bird), the name sake for the "Bird's Nest" Cabin. Jason also attended LSU/Baton Rouge and the LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans; he graduated in December of 2013 with a BSN degree. Jason is also an RN in the ER at West Jeff Hospital in New Orleans. As you can see, both young men are interested in the health care industry and hopefully will take care of mom and dad in our retirement. When they are here visiting you might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of Nathan or Jason, they will either have a fishing pole in hand (heading to their favorite fishing hole) or on their way to the swimming hole.

As a family, we have enjoyed all types of fishing all of our lives. We are looking forward to doing a lot more fishing here on Toledo Bend and adding to our photo album.
