I bought my first Fishing Kayak, Hobie Outback and I know that a lot of places charge to launch a boat. I want to try to get out a few times a week. The only free launch I know of is Discovery Bay, but that is kind a of a ways for me, although I'll be going out that way from time to time. Is there anything in Oakley or Brentwood that anyone knows of? Kayak fishing I find is soo much fun, more areas to explore and a great workout. I hope to hit the Delta for Salmon when it opens this month :)

You can launch that thing anywhere you can get to the water. No need to use a launch ramp.

Thanks shooter looks like I will be scouting for land to launch then, lol. Living along the delta I'm sure I'll find something. Thanks again :)

Steph,
Congrats on the Hobie, thats a nice yak.
Just be sure to watch the tides so when you come back to the place you launch you are in a protected area from the currents until you get used to the currents pushing you around. Plus watch where you park too, dam theives now days. Good luck to ya on your new adventure.

There is a free launch ramp in Antioch,
it is at the end of Fulton shipyard rd.
Take "A" street to 10th street, Turn right onto 10th street, and left on Fulton shipyard rd.
follow it to the red cabose (cafe) the ramp is across the street from the Red Cabose.
