    Default Coho Cove Campground and boat launch

    Anyone know the status of the campground and boat launch?
    Did anyone fish the Kasilof last fall and if so, were you taking out at Coho or the cabins?
    How long does it take to get from the bridge to the cabins?
    Thanks so much!

    don't know about the cabins or launch, but there is places at crooked creek, and it is a shorter float, but you can drag it out if you want by sitting on the holes.

    I heard last year Coho Cove was sold and will no longer be available for public use. Can anyone comment further on this?
    I checked less than a week ago and the crooked creek campground still had a ton of untouched unplowed snow. I am guessing it will be awhile yet before anyplace opens on the river due to the snow we had this year.
    The parking lot at the bridge was also snowed in you could pull in and turn around at the entrance but that was about it.
    You are correct there is no launch /retrieve at crooked creek just some campsites and dayuse parking.

    basically I am saying you can camp there, but that is it, and as for coho cove you can cross that one off the list, new people own it and I have heard they aren't going to allow people to use it. But like I said that is what I heard. As for a public launch the only one I knwo of is at the bridge, the state has thrown around the idea of putting in anther one down stream in the future.

    There were some questions about that earlier. From what I heard the campground there may be closed but the river opening may still be available for pull outs at the least. Not sure though. There was another thread on it here a while back.

    I saw that thread as well. But I figured by now, someone would have heard something?

    I have heard the same thing about Coho Cove, but like you guys, I don't have any first hand information.... what I do know first hand is that Trujillo's landing will be open again this year for a take-out spot. I believe he said it'll be $20/take-out

    fishing isn't about life or death... it's more important than that.

    Good news on Trujillo's being open again. They are pretty much at the end of the fishing zone anyway.
    I have done the beach thing and $20 is money well spent compared to that. Yeah we did it ok but the risk and hassle was
    not worth it. Plus once dipnetting opens there is no way you could do it off the beach with all the people.
    There is always Kasilof cabins if you want to go that far down.

    Last word I heard was that it is closed to the public and only open to those of us who live in the subdivision, that was written into the contractual language ... still fishing down south and will be up in about two weeks, I'll post more if I hear it.
