You can launch at a couple different places on the river. There is ARU which is just up from the hospital and you can troll from there all the way to the mouth. You can also launch at Kisters Marina which is just around the corner on Lake Avenue. Not sure when they pull the docks on the ramps though. There also is Lakeshore park you can launch from there and then troll from the mouth all the way down river to the last marina it gets shallow by last few docks and bottoms out under the road by the hospital.
