    Negative. Launch in the Copper on the east side of the bridge.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    I launched my 16 foot skiff there about a month ago. It aint much of a launch. There wasnt even enough water to submerge my trailor and i had a rough time getting my boat unloaded and loaded back up. If you got a light enough boat it wouldnt be a problem.

    there's kind of a spot where the flow of the creek empties into the copper. the copper is a lil slower there. you'll still have to launch at a downstream angle though
    if only we could launch where the charter guys park their boats every night. now that's a perfect spot

    I have a 20 foot boat, usually launch on the east side but was looking for some other options and maybe camp & process at O'brien considering there are cleaning tables......something the folks on the east side have never figured out........
    Maybe with high water its doable.....?

    I am pretty sure that there is an access fee to launch at O'Brien creek (Native land). But I seen a truck and boat trailer setting there yesterday. Also the cleaning trailer is for the charter costumers. There are a couple of small plywood tables set up on the other side of the creek.

    Sometimes you can launch there. I've never been able to manage it but that's mostly because they had it blocked off. You can see these guys launching there in the Fish and Game videos:
