2017 Boat Launch Ramp List
Warning! This is Copyrighted Material and is NOT to be used other than finding a ramp.
Duplication on any other Internet site is a violation of copyright law!

We were the first to bring you this info years and years ago...and while they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...and funny how others are copying everything we do now...however copyright violation is a serious thing and in legal action we were victorious!

Folks, you have NO IDEA what it was like trying to put this list together. Dealing with town or city Fishing Line Message Boardsgovernments, employees and town clerks who seem to have no idea that their job is to dispense information to the public, and the lack thereof  and the amount of phone calls, lost connections, transferring calls and lack of general knowledge that is required to do their job was unbelievable to put it mildly! It was excruciating...but worth it if you use this information.

Be advised though, listings are subject to change and any fees associated with wpe23.jpg (14430 bytes)these ramps and their regulations are the sole responsibility of the towns and villages in which they lie. Phone numbers provided are the first place to look for answers if you have questions. Some will put you in contact with the ramp site themselves, while others may put you in touch with an agency or town representative and may only be answered during business hours. Don’t wait until the day you decide to sail to find out any specific details needed to have an enjoyable day. If any ramp sites are omitted, feel free to contact me so I may update your favorite ramp. This list was prepared with many, many hours of research and phone calls. I hope you enjoy the effort and good fishing!
