I have been paddling on Smith Creek numerous times since the city built a launch at Archie Blue park. Smith Creek has about 6 miles of navigable water pretty much free of motor boat traffic and very little shoreline development. Putting another launch near the mouth is a great idea as that will provide close access to the backwaters and old rice paddies along the CFR between the mouth of Smith Creek and I-140. You can paddle in there for days.Great kayak fishing area.
Glad to to see the city putting my money into parks and recreation.
