Lake Bistineau has been closed to boat traffic due to rising waters, according to Webster and Bossier parish officials.

Webster Parish Police Jury President Jim Bonsall and Bossier Parish Administrator Bill Altimus made the joint announcement Sunday after the National Weather Service predicted the Red River would crest at 37 feet Monday morning.

Lake Bistineau water levels have been rising steadily since Friday and with the revised crest level of the Red River, levels are expected to continue to go up. Camp owners along the lake are advised to closely monitor the situation, and officials believe water levels similar to 2009 may be expected.
