Which Launches are good to launch your boat in right now? I was thinking about launching at Ferry island on Sunday, any suggestions?

Last I saw that launch is unusable what with the dredging and the high water. You best bet is Gil road or Island 22 from this side.

depending on where and what part of the river you want to fish? hunter creek has a good boat launch as does island 22 and rosedale is good as well those would be the main ones everyone uses!

C.K.

Thanks guys, I think I might use the Gill Launch.

If you see me out on the river feel free to say hi! I have a red starcraft riveted aluminum that gets towed by a 94 red explorer.

Cheers

Red and red, who can miss you? :D By the way I think Rosedale is the same as ferry island is it not?

Depending on where you are comming from , you can launch at Kilby park on the harrison or barrowtown on the Vedder canal.

Marko, I belive there are two launches. One is on the Rosedale side and the other is on the aggasiz side.

Well just so everyone knows, the ferry island boat launch (rosedale) is closed. Nowhere to launch with all that gravel there.

Thanks Steelie, thats what I thought. Is the gravel almost gone? There was half left about three weeks ago.

There's about a 4ft pile of gravel right at the shoreline that wraps around the whole area. Don't know howmuch was there before, I haven't been there since the sock opening last year.

For those of you familar with Google Earth (the free desktop, downloaded verion), I've created a map of a few of the launches I know of in-and-around the Lower Mainland and the Fraser Valley.

If you'd like the file and would contribute a placemarker or two, PM me with your email address and I'll send it to you.

If you don't have Google Earth, you can download it free from here: http://earth.google.com/download-earth.html. You'll need a broadband internet connection for it to work properly.

I've done the same thing myself. The only thing that bothers me about google earth is that you loose detail just before ferry island!
