Hi folks, I've been lurking for a while and reading a ton... Thank you all for sharing your knowledge...

My first post is for directions... I'm heading out to the fraser for my first time tomorrow and I was wondering if someone can give me directions to the boat launch in pitt meadows. I think I read on one of the threads here that it is on Wharf road?

I looked up wharf road on google maps and I kow the general area but I was wondering if someone would be able to tell me exactly where to go? I'll be comeing from coquitlam...

Tank you very much...

Hello All,

Well I found a boat launch, not sure if it was the same one that I was looking at, but I found one... IT was a good experience, more of a getting to know how it's done type of trip...

I think there was only one other boat out there besides us without some sort of cover... ;D brrrrr.... it was cold and wet... but it was nice to finaly get out there and get some experience on the fraser... :thumbup:

Zenyo whered you go on the Fraser - I can give you some places to fish salmon on there if needed - Its more closer to Langley - I launch at Fort Langley
Is the water high enough still, even at low tide, to launch in Fort Langley?

Hi GrandA,

We launched near the albian ferry. and we headed downstream. We passed 2 channels, at the end of the second there was a bar werer there were a buch of folks fishing. That's the point were we turned around a fished a couple of different spots on the way back. That's the best that I can do in terms of describing where we were cause I realy don't know the river that well.

Lund Lubber - Sometimes I have to put it in 4 wheel and go out pretty far to launch the boat. I have a fiberglass centre console 16 footer so I have to be a little more cautious in compared to an aluminum.

ZENYO - I'll try to explain where I have gone for loads of chum in the past. I would launch at Fort Langley and go right if you keep going right you will see another island you can either go left or right there - Go left follow that until you see a railroad track it'll be on your left hand side - go under the bridge. Tides in there are crazy and it can be very shallow so watch out. I would cast with lures and had a lot of success. It should take about 10-15 minutes if your cruising at 30 MPH to get to the spot. What type of boat do you have?

Is there still that wicked drop-off at the end of the launch?

I have a 17' Lund and would be concerned I can get it in, but not out :eek:

Lund-Lubber - The launch is in rough condition. The pavement only goes out to a certain point. Your rear tires probably will end up going in mud. There is a drop off like when your about to launch the boat once you get down to the waters its a steady slope. If you have a 4 wheel I wouldn't be concerned. I used to have a 14 foot smoker craft and pulled it with a VW Jetta and only once was concerned at that launch.

When are you guys going to head out - maybe we can all go out?
