Does anyone know of any boat launches to launch into the Mississippi river near or around the Baton Rouge area?

1) under I-10 bridge eastbank (Don't know of the condition of that one anymore)

2) Port Allen Lock (have to go through lock to get to river)

3) Just downstream of the Old Plaquemine lock

Old Ferry Landing in St. Francisville. When the river fell to 1-2 ft a few years ago they extended the ramp further. I know its a little bit of a drive, but it you're fishing it offers the best of both worlds. Main river fishing and Bayou Sara & Thompson Creek for some backwater fishing.
