From The Red River Waterway Commission:

The Red River Waterway Commission has re-opened the public boat ramps located in Caddo and Bossier parishes.  

These include the ramps at Stoner Avenue (Shreveport), Teague Parkway (Bossier), Bishop Point (Shreveport) and North Caddo/Bossier (Hwy 2) recreation areas.

The Commission is advising boaters to use caution when launching into the current and be highly aware of obstacles such as trees and sandbars while navigating the river.

As water levels continue to fall to normal stages, additional cleaning and repairs will be necessary to accommodate the launching process. Boaters may experience delays in launching caused by temporary closures of the ramps during these periods. Cooperation from boaters is appreciated during the clean-up efforts. 
The Red River Waterway Commission observes defined river stages within its district to determine the status of public boat ramps.
