There's a launch off lower river road, it is in the slough for Caterpillar island. I think there is one at Richland, that would out you across from the other end of the island.

Hello BRAD! Hopefully your moniker has something to do with what you DO, and not a trip to Mexico!


That was a joke for you way-to-serious-people that read this board.

There is the Gilbert River ramp on the island.

One other question, would I then need a Washington Liscense since I am launching in Washington?

Nope. Either state license is good as long as you are fishing in the mainstem Columbia, regardless of where you launch. Welcome aboard!

Crabby,
Well......two strikes against you.......you are Chris's neighbor, and HE is teaching you to fish. I notice you didn't say he is teaching you to catch! :grin: Welcome to the neighborhood.

I am interested in trading some Salmon trips. Heck, you might even learn a thing or three :wink:

I'm sure I would learn something......I just caught my first of the year! Shoot, I'm still trying to figure out this sturgeon thing???? Seriously though, anytime you want, the fishing is getting good now, the next month or so should be outstanding on our side of the woods.

If you launch in "Richland", you will have a long ride in your "dingy" to get to Sauvies.

Crabby, there is no Columbia River Launch from Sauvies Is., Caterpillar Is. is an option, the others are either Freds or Cathedral park on the Willamette or a St. Helens/Scapoose bay location.
The caterpillar ramp is harder to find, narrow and scary in the dark.
