there are no more public launches in this stretch.It is of equal distance from both launches,peoria is a shallow and snaggy slew,Cartney is better launch,and the wiser choice if you are drifting.I did this stretch a few weeks ago,dont forget your trout rod.

what did you use when fishing that stretch of the river? Ever fish for steel head or salmon there. I know there is nice sturgeon in some of those deep pools.

The confluence with long tom is at a side channel (fairly big side channel), see link.

long tom mouth
As far as I know you can still launch at Irish Bend (no improvements, gravel), which is close to the long tom. Not much in the way of signs getting there.
