First launch

Recommended Posts

Looking for a free launch for first time boater. Something not too busy, it'll be the first launch of the new/used boat, so quiet, safe, limited current kinda place would be good. Not looking for fishing spots, just a launch- if fish happen, great :)

Nothing much in St.Kitts except Sunset Beach at Port Weller ( no good with Northerly winds)

There's a couple at the Welland R. that are free .....one in town & one by the airport off Colbeck Rd.

We used to launch at Cayuga but that was way back ....The pay launch at the old BBQ  at the Dunnville bridge was only $10 last year ....real nice launch & they said they would have a fry stand etc. soon !  The airport spot is at ECBrown park on River road ....not a great launch but ok for medium size boats . Watch for deadheads in the river !

Smerch- sounds like the dunnville launch might be what we are after!! Thanks so much!

 

Snags- fishing is for sure allowed, but will be second to testing out the boat!!! Always, always have reserves of gear- only 6 rods left and 2 60l totes of gear now tho ;)

And check the charts before you leave if you don't have map chip. there are some very shallow area in places you would not expect.
