Question Thames Put-In

Anyone know of a good put-in south of 95 on the west side of the Thames?

Many thanks

There's a boat launch directly under the I-95 bridges. Access from State Pier Road in New London. This is within a relatively short paddle to the piers and docks down river and across river. (Never paddled from there, but usually launch boat there.) Also, furthur south of the bridges, you should be able to put in at Green's Harbor Beach off Pequot Ave. There is parking directly across street. It's also just up the road from Stash's Cafe. Good pub food and Guinness. Post or e-mail me if you need directions...

Whooaa! good advice, Joe! and Zenfisher... was that custommade advice for Riley or what? right up his alley.

Joe and others: has anyone yakked around the Ft. Trumbull piers? are they in the ferry wake zone? does that thing throw a wake even there within the "harbor"?

Alder: you know how to add the smilies, don't you? just click on em.

Being a State Park now, Ft Trumbull has gates that they close. There is a pier right on the same point where fishing boats dock to the north of the Fort, past where the USGA boats are docked. It always looked pretty tempting to me when we were bringing the fill in to that site. I also haven't been down there since we finished that job so they could have more gates and fences. I can't remember the name of the street but if you drove in to the gates to the park, just in case they are open and turn left if they aren't...you are forced to go around the block. At the first intersection you come to go right. Keep going straight and the fishing docks are eventually on your right. You could then ask them if you could park and launch there. There was a nice slope with a little beach at most tide. Some rip rap to hold the bank but nothing you can't make your way over with a yak.

Oh...I forgot...you guys can go under the 10' RR overpass. Take Howard Street off of Bank St., Its a left coming from the State Pier (in case you stopped at that launch first) Take your first left under a RR bridge. The second left will be the road to the fish dock.

Cheers!!!!
