Self-clearing permits are required for each person engaged in any nighttime activity in the Salvador Wildlife Management Area. The permits can be obtained at Pier 90 in Luling and at the boat launch in Bayou Gauche. Permits may also be downloaded from www.wlf.louisiana.gov/permit/self-clearing-permit.
Possession of firearms is prohibited in the wildlife management area during the nighttime season and all watercraft must have working running lights and the proper number of life jackets for passengers.
It is also illegal to harm or disturb alligators. Only licensed alligator hunters can harvest alligators during the alligator season.
