Many fishermen are asking about the status of various boat ramps around the Galveston Bay system. Based on surveys completed Tuesday, September 23, 2008 by TPWD Coastal Fisheries Division staff the following ramps are useable/open. Please be advised that no attempt has been made yet to determine the depths in these ramps (siltation) or the presences of submerged debris. USE CAUTION WHEN LAUNCHING. Note also that Galveston Island, Bolivar, and Surfside were not accessible to the general public on this date so these sites are not included on this list.

Dickinson Bayou County Ramp (SH 3)
Dickinson Bayou @ Highway 146 Bridge
Ben Blackledge Public Ramp (@ Highway 146 in Kemah)
Seabrook @ Highway 146
Morgan's Point Ramp
Roseland Park Ramp
Clear Lake Ramp
League City FM 270 Ramp
Smith Point Ramp
Oak Island County Ramp (on Double Bayou)
Fort Anahuac Park Ramp
Cotton Lake Ramp
Hitchcock Public Ramp
Hall's Bayou Camp
Hall's Bayou Bridge Ramp
Horseshoe Bend Ramp
Under the Bridge Bar Bait Camp
Marlin Marina Ramp
Bastrop Bayou CR 227 Bridge State Ramp
Bastro pMarina Ramp
Oyster Creek Ramp
Freeport Community Center Ramp
Freeport Municipal Park Ramp
Freeport New Brazos River Ramp
New Brazos River Dike Ramp
New Brazos River SH 36 Bridge Ramp
Bridge Bait (one ramp open)

We expect more ramps to open as debris is cleaned from the sites and power is restored to areas. Debris fields are extensive in some areas and there are submerged obstacles around the bay. Please operate your boats at safe speeds when traveling around Galveston Bay (includes West Bay, Christmas Bay, Chocolate Bay, etc., etc.).

  • The one ramp at Bridge Bait was barricaded yesterday and not available.
  • Sylvan Beach was closed until further notice by the city - hadn't heard that it had reopened.
  • The ramp at what was formerly Fat Boy's Bait Camp is useable.
  • There are several useable ramps on Galveston Island and Follett's Island (Christmas Bay) but the areas have not opened to the general public. The road is gone for several miles on Follettt's island and it may be some time before public access is allowed.

The Fish Spot on Moses Lake is the Only "Public" Ramp Open.
They do or did have a sunken shrimpboat taking up half of it.

The markers for the channel are in good shape and you can easily make it in/out.

I thought I had read that the ramp at Topwater Grill was open?
I dunno. 2Cool boards info is indefinite. If you find out that it's working, copy the list and add it in.

I see no one put Eagle Point on it, either.

Heheh. I figure the more ramps get open and posted, the more people will go fish, and these boards won't be so crowded.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the communities of Oak Island, and Smith Point are both still closed to the public. Home owners, land owners only allowed.....if this has changed please update. Thanks
