They are called bayous. Bogs typically get all of their water from rain and are created by sphagnum moss buildup over existing ponds or dry land that becomes saturated with rain - they are stagnant, peat-filled depressions. Bayous (like in Louisiana) are marshy outlets or offshoots of lakes or rivers (i.e. they have very slow moving water that is fed from a larger water source).
There are over 5,000 miles of navigable rivers, creeks, bayous, and canals in Louisiana. Much commerce is produced in this traffic.
