Paddling Skagit River Delta - La Connor -Trip #26

Downtown La Connor
The Skagit River Delta chapter is quite extensive and includes Goat and Ika Islands, La Connor, and several river channels to the south.  Here's an image of the Rainbow Bridge in La Connor.  There's a new Cascadia Marine Trail campsite just below the bridge on the right (or east) side in Pioneer Park.  Also below the bridge is the only easy water access via a boat ramp in La Connor. For more info on the campsite check out

La Connor is a great place to grab a bite, a beer, and/or stock up for a trip while in town.

The image below of the wire fish sculpture is in the town of La Connor.  We couldn't find any info on whether it's ok to launch there.  The current rips through there on big exchanges and it's most often used by commercial fishermen.
