    If you can find a place to launch into Pitchkettle Creek you will be fine. The main flow of the Neuse will be pretty stong and high, but the crek will be fine with hardly any flow.

    Haven't heard of any public accesses to PK Creek, but I don't fish there very much. Anyone know if there are any for yaks and canoes?

    Spring Garden boat ramp is located on the main of the Neuse River. So the shad fishing along with stripers when they get there are good.

    As far as I know there isn't any public access. The closest ramp is Core Creek, then Maple Cypress, Cowpen Landing. Long haul on a yak. Core Creek would be a good option, especially if the water is high. Shad are caught up the creek also.

    Thanks for the help and the link guys! Ok then what is Cool Springs boat ramp? If you go on Google Earth behind weyerhauser is creek with a 180 degree bend in it and in the crook of the bend is a picture of Cool Springs boat ramp. Is this Spring Garden? It doesnt really like the main Neuse River to me but maybe it is..

    OK after some search, you are on Swift Creek with Cool Springs. The other side of the river, travel west, go past the bridge and continue. You will come upon the school road and the ramp is at the dead end.

    I've been to Cool Springs ramp with someone else, just to take a look at it. Great lookin ramp there. I am thinking that the creek to the left as you go down stream from the bridge, and Weyerhouser plant is Swift Creek, but not possitive. I have been there years ago, but just a couple of times.
