At least one kayaker has used it as a launch...

For me, this is a situation where you just have to hope for the best. On one hand, it's in an out of the way area and might thus be a good place to do some crimes, but on the other, there aren't a lot of ways in and out for thieves to use. To be sure, I would practice the "leave nothing of value in your vehicle and leave the doors unlocked" method of parking.

Well I went this weekend and didn't have a problem launching. There are two launch places from the bridge. Fishing was ok but the area is beautiful. One thing I noticed was that there were lots for PBs even in the marshes. They were very and nice slowed down when they saw me with my kayak which was a change from the PBs in 8 mile run.

How is the actual launch? Can you roll your yak all the way to the water's edge or do you have to carry it over obstacles?

Yes you can drag the kayak from both launch sites.

I launch there a couple times a week if the water is right. I live off 2004 in Hitchcock and I have never had any issues there. It is a nice place and gets you in Pierce Marsh pretty quick. If you ever see a white chevy diesel there it's me and I ain't that far out. Come check it out. You can pull your truck right up to the west side of the bridge and unload your gear but on the east side you have to carry everything across the road. Remember to pull your rods out of the rod holder when going under the bridge cause they will hit.
I want to improve!
