Boat Launch Report - March 2015 (#1 of 3)

17th Ave SE/Blackfoot Trail (Cushing Bridge). The gate to this launch has now been locked for more than a year. The Calgary Fire Department doesn't want to share. You'll need a boat that you can carry down to the river from the street (17 A St SE). That's the road that leads to the Bow Habitat Station & Sam Livingston Fish Hatchery.

It was time for our annual early-March tour of Bow River boat launches. Here is what we saw.

Glenmore Trail (Graves Landing). A few boaters have already launched from here over the past couple of weeks.

22X/Fish Creek Park. The gate is still locked. It's usually unlocked as soon as the snow and ice has melted from the road leading down to the launch. That could be any day now. In the meantime, you need a boat that you can carry down to the water.
