Salt Creek - Kayak Trip / Canoe Trip
Day Trip Report
June 9, 2012
We entered a mile west of the Lonoma Beach Resort on Hwy. 6 exit to your right (called Catfish Run). You can either go down stream to the Platte River and get out at the Schramm State Fish Hatchery about a 3 hour trip. Or you can paddle up Salt Creek (VERY VERY slow current) for as far as you want and then drift back to where you entered.
A bit muddy when you get in, but the water is warm and fairly clean. Easy to paddle upstream as far as you like so you only have to park 1 car.
Fairly large parking area at Catfish Run with trash receptacles. Easy walk down to water.
>From Omaha, Nebraska: Hwy. 6 about 6 miles west of Grenta, NE. Go 1 mile past Loma Beach to a bridge over Salt Creek on the northeast side of the bridge is a launching area and a place to park your car.
>From Lincoln: About 3 miles east of Ashland on Hwy. 6. Cross the Salt Creek Bridge and on the northeast side of the Hwy. is a launching area and a place to park your car.
