View Full Version : Launch Ramp for Cache slough(liberty island)

11-17-2005, 06:05 PM
I know the liberty island road is closed to shore fisherman. I was wondering if there is a ramp near by where I can safely park and launch a kayak.

I am determined to get a legal sturg on a yak, even though I've never fished on one before.

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

Arrowhead landing on Miner Slough is the closest. There is a back way through Dixon that comes to a bridge on Shag Slough but don't know the exact directions. :-/

Take Jefferson Blvd. (HWY 84) south to Courtland Rd.

Turn right on Courtland Rd (name changes to Ryer Rd.
but is still HWY 84) and stay on it till you get to the fork
in the road that is just before the Ryer Island Bridge.

Turn right onto Holland Rd., up onto the levee and go to

I thought for sure that they remodeled the Ramp. I called there couple days ago and it's thesame :-[

Thanks for the help fellas...!

How long of a ride from the launch to where the sloughs meet (pretty much at the end of Liberty Island Road)?
I'll be paddling in a kayak.

My boat goes about 7 miles an hour and it takes me about 25-35 minutes to get to the mouth of where liberty island is.

Then it would take me an hour at least to paddle from the marina to where the sloughs meet.
Are there any legit parking spaces where I can park my car on Liberty Island Road, next to one of the bridges towards the end of the road?

The tides can rip through Miner slough.

It's always been a thought of what to do when I get one hooked up and have to fight it by myself trolling of free drifting.

I would imagine if you rode the tides, you could make pretty good time. They must go 5+ mph some times.
