Would like some advice.
I plan on fishing near Brannan Island SRA.  Is it best to launch from Brannan Island SRA, or are there other spots nearby to launch my kayak.  My concerns are: vehicle safety while fishing; launch spots with shorter paddling/pedaling distance to fishing grounds.

I would obviously prefer to paddle an extra mile from a safer parking spot than risk windows being broken.  Give me your two cents. Thx in advance.

You're probably better off just launching at Brannan Island.

But Eddo's is one possibility. It's a couple miles south of Brannan Island, so maybe a bit far based on your post; might work for your plans given the right tide. They charge $10. I've launched from there many times & never had any parking problems or vandalism.

It's been years since I launched anywhere in the Delta except from a marina - precisely because of the car safety issue. For current pricing, the most expensive I know of is B&W ($12). Most are $10. The 2 I know of that charge $5 are Holland Riverside (if you launch off the lawn/beach not the boat ramp) & Bethel Harbor (you have to launch off the dock). I think Sherman Island is also $5 as long as you don't have a trailer.

Good luck. Striper fishing's been spotty so far this season, but I've had a couple really good days.

Thx Bill for the the intel. I am going to add those launch spots to the list I gathered from another post on Delta launch spots.
