    Glad to see this was dredged, as I launched as usual in the fall, only to find out that a lot of sand had shifted into the mouth, making the water depth approx. 22 – 24″.

    I used this boat launch all summer, and had no issues with water depth up until late August. The average depth of the channel during July was 34″ – 40″ in the centre of the channel. Heavy weeds at the rear of the public boat launch if you weren’t paying attention, but still very manageable.

    I chase salmon and trout from this launching off point, and since I trailer my boat from Belleville, this is very convienient for me.

    Thank-you PEC (Wellington) for looking after this!

    What is the new dredged depth of the channel now???
