Fort Langley has one, not sure which side of the Fraser you wanted though. I live on the south side so I'm not to sure about the north side.

Head upriver to the end of the Island and TAKE a WIDE BERTH here.....the end of the Island is a snag invested hole....go well up river and then turn downstream in the main channel. From the launch to the Stave is about 4-5 miles. The Stave will be on your right as you are heading downstream. Remember, it is tidal water to the highway bridges, and classed as freshwater above them...Ortho 8)

From the boat launch in the channel by the Fort Pub ...

1) Head upstream in the channel keeping to the right side to avoid the deadheads ...... keep to the right well past the top of the island (lots of deadheads there).

2) Continue upstream in the main Fraser River flow ..... you can cross over to the left (north) side of the river once you have cleared the island.

3) Continue up stream for about 5 miles. *** CORRECTION: DO NOT TURN DOWNSTREAM ..... YOU'LL BE GOING THE WRONG WAY. ***

4) You will come to Ruskin, a shake mill, and then see the bridge (Lougheed Highway) ..... that is the entrance to the Stave system.

5) As stated by Ortho .... the Fraser side of the Bridge is Tidal Water regulations ....... above the bridge is Non-tidal (Fresh) water regulations.

Have fun,

thanks guys. I followed fishortho advice at first but it didn't feel right. I guess since i knew stave lake was upstream and a couple weldeds were heading up so i followed and figured it out and caught a nice 5 footer and lots of hits. The dogs were going crazy all around us . Great day and thanks again guys.

Was that launch still usable? Typically at this time of the year, the water is too low most of the time and it has a wicked drop-off at the end.

For others, for future reference, the entrance to the launch is off Chruch Street. You turn East off Glover at the blinking yellow light onto Mavis, then your next left onto Church. It's actually more like a lane and in between the antique store and the sushi place.

Follow the road over the train tracks, and bare right. Go to the very end. You can't miss it.

also with full courtesty you can ask frank at the airport for permission to launch he is usually pretty good about it and it cuts your boat trip down quite a bit, head down river road.
