Cougar Lane Gravel Bar Launch.  Spring 2010.  Notice the Deep Channel Underneath the Willows on the Right.Attention:  The launch itself can be shallow in Summer time flows and jet boats can sometimes be prevented from launching here at the lowest flows.  There is a deep channel along the eastern edge of the launch underneath the willows where pumps can operate without sucking too much silt.  

Cougar Lane put-in is a gravel bar launch that receives a lot of traffic in the summer time.  The tour boats land here for lunch at the restaurant.  The put-in is usually deep enough at all water flows for jet boats and drift boats.  However, in the Fall jet boats can be difficult to take-out and put-in due to shallow water unless the winter's floods have gouged a channel.
