      If it is physically possible, boaters can launch at most state road bridges. Roads and bridges are public right-of-ways. The key phrase is, “if it is physically possible”.
      Traditionally, people have also launched at the Lake Waccamaw dam. The next takeout is a loooong way down the river.
      Paul Ferguson’s book, “Paddling Eastern North Carolina” is very detailed and accurate and covers most of the navigable fresh water in the region.
