Hello,  my name is Joe Hinton and for 22 years I lived with my lovely wife Joyce 
on the banks of beautiful Lake Bistineau. Even though we have moved a short distance from the lake, my efforts to reveal its secrets continue...  

Lake Bistineau is located in northwest Louisiana
and is best known for the old cypress trees draped in spanish moss, excellent fishing and easy living. One does not have to look hard to see the great blue herons stalking their prey or the majestic white pelicans that visit in the winter. Easily aroused from their nest, the wood ducks go squealing off, scattering the family of raccoons that are washing their catch in the shallow waters. Watching all of this excitement are the young deer dressed in their coat of white speckles as they nestle to their mother while she feeds on the grassy banks listening to the wind whisper in the pines.
Coupled with the enjoyment and despite the hypnotic affect of this splendor of nature,  I have, over the past several years, accumulated some interesting historical data related to the lake and the adjoining communities it helped to create. I would enjoy sharing this information with you, so if you are interested just click here on History, but first please visit the remainder of this page.
