Henderson landing = be carefull

4 posts in this topic

Got a look at the landing tonight and just a little advice, BE CAREFULL. The river has actually undercut the cement a good 10 feet on the left side. I know River Rat and Softshell Ed have been out of there recently and the landing drops straight off a good 2 feet.

It looked pretty hairy when we launched there on Friday for the BPCL. The cement pads are all undercut on the left (as you look down the ramp) from a gully. On the right there is the two foot dropoff that Brian mentioned.

I would think with the extra rain we've had this weekend the undercut area will have gotten even worse. The higher river level might make it easier to launch on the right side if you can keep on the cement pads. Get out and check the ramp throughly before backing your boat in.

I launched my kayak out of Henderson on Monday morning. Quite a difference from last Friday. I'm guessing the river is up 3 1/2 feet since Friday night. Looking at the ramp this morning I could not see any problems. The undercut area is totally underwater, and the two foot dropoff is quite a ways out. I'm not saying it is safe to launch a boat here. You just can't tell there is an undercut area by looking, as that area is underwater.

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
