    Default Delta ?

    Hi all!!!

    Thought this would be the place to ask about places to hit up on the Delta. We're staying at Windmill Cove this weekend. Im sure we'll make a trip up to Tower Park and Wimpy's but from Windmill whats some other places to hit up for a drink/food? I know about Garlic Bros. What about port of Stockton? We might be heading down to Orrwood to hook up with some friends, anywere good down that direction? Thanks for the info.

    union point for food, and drinks, but watch out for the roll bar boats
    river boat for restarant style food and drinks or just drinks at the bar, outrigger for drinks. We also found a small place but good burgers at whiskey slew. these are a few in the area you are staying.

    No worries on the roll bar boat thing, thats what we have

    Riverboat look cool and easy to get to, we'll have to check it out.

    How far of a ride is it from Windmill to Discovery Bay? Is it pretty easy to get to? Thanks.

    Byron, it's about 18 miles I do believe. Timewise, there's a pretty long no wake zone through Turner Cut/Tiki Lagun, then it's pretty much open the whole way from there. About 25-30 minute run I do believe.

    Make sure when you turn off the main channel to go that direction that you turn left at channel marker 24 so that you won't have to go through the Lost Isle no wake zone.

    If you plan on going to Riverboat and you take the main channel all the way up to it, you'll notice that after channel marker 1, right around Prisoner's Point you'll see the channel marker numbers reset to "57" and "58". Keep going straight up the channel, and you'll make a right at channel marker "49". That will take you to Pirate's Liar, Riverboat, Lighthouse, etc etc. They're all grouped up right there next to each other on the left at the entrance to the "Moke" (Moukeloumne River".

    Have fun and be safe out there.

    Anytime Byron. Here is a "light list" of sorts for ya -

    Red markers are even numbers
    Green markers are odd numbers

    When the red markers are to your left and the green markers are to your right, you're heading northwest away from Stockton

    When the green markers are to your left and the red markers are to your right, you're heading southeast towards Stockton

    Heading out of Windmill Cove and going northwest -

    Channel marker 33 is Ski Beach and Fourteen Mile Slough, which will take you to Garlic Brothers. To get to Garlic Brothers, you follow the levee on your left. When you get to the end of that, you go right and follow that around to Garlic Brothers

    Channel marker 24 - Turner Cut (back side of Lost Isle). This is where you turn to go towards Tiki Lagun and also the start of the route to Disco Bay/Orwood

    Channel Marker 11 - Little Connection Slough. Turning here and going straight up will take you to Herman & Helens and Tower Park

    Channel Marker 49 - Moukeloumne River (The "Moke"). Turning here will take you right to Pirate's Lair, Willow Berm, Riverboat, Lighthouse. A little further up is B&W, but your rollbar may not clear the Highway 12 bridge at high tide (8' vertical clearance at high water tide, 11' at low water tide)

    Passing B&W and staying with the levee on your right will also take you to Tower Park

    Passing B&W and continuing with the levee on your left will take you to Guisti's

    Channel marker 34 - Heading back towards Stockton, Windmill Cove is just past marker 34. It's exactly halfway between marker 34 and 36.

    Hope this helps. I PMed you my number in case you have any more questions.

    Byron, thanks to Don (Hullshot) I just caught a typo in my original "light list" post. I've just corrected it so if you've printed it out you may wanna reprint it before you head out.

    Let me give you some directions to Windmill from Orwood Jon.

    Leave Orwood make a right then a left, left, right, left, right, merge, left (or right if you want to go to wiskey Slough) stay right, right and Windmill will be on the right.

    If there is anyplace else you want to go Jon just ask
