Default Boat launches on the North Sask

I just got a new boat and have hit the river a couple times now. What a blast. it opens a whole new world!
Where are there decent boat launches outside city limits that are easy to back a trailer and boat into the water? I launched in Devon a couple times and it wasn't bad. Ran the boat to Gennesee bridge but noticed they had a construction crew housing building blocking the ramp. I heard sometimes Vinca bridge is ok but I couldn't find anything there that would be easy to back a trailer and boat into.
Any ideas guys?
Thanks

Where in The Fort is there one? That would be a nice part of the river to run.
Goldbar would be o.k but too much traffic and want to find something outside the city a bit. Doesn't sound like there is much out there

don't own a boat but go over the N Sask river south of Tomahawk a lot and notice just downstream from bridge on the southbank there is a spot that looks like people use to launch boats from. see lots of trailers there and people enjoying the day by the river there. you might want to take a trip out there to see for yourself if it is suitable for launching your boat from.

Follow the signs on highway 21 when entering the fort from the south. Its not too far into the city.

Get on Google earth and follow the river, you will be able to see every launch.
