Sandy's Marina is on Huron River Dr. in Belleville. I guess that would be the southern part of the lake

I am looking for a launch on the actual river. I fish ford lake a lot but would love to get a small aluminum boat in the river around the dexter/ann arbor area. Everything I have read says GREAT SMALLMOUTH and I want a piece of the action, and it would be nice to get on a river other than one of the impoundments. If you are in the know please point me in the direction of the launch. Thanks all!

There's a launch (if you can call it that) on Huron River Drive, above Barton Dam a mile or so. Only good for a small aluminum boat or canoe. Anything of size will be hard to get up the short, steep gravel slope. Also, there is a bridge immediately downstream of the launch. If there is high water you may not get under it even in a small boat. If the water is down, you will get under with a small boat, but you have to duck your head. A full size boat with a windshield will not make it.
I think Barton Pond is slow-no wake.
There is a DNR launch in Flat Rock at Telegraph. Sandy's on Belleville Lake is good. Also the launch at Gallup Park onto Geddes Pond. Geddes Pond is also technically slow-no wake. There is a DNR boat launch at Portage Lake. There is a *very* narrow channel that lets you onto the river so you can head up to Strawberry Lake and higher. Can't go downstream due to Baseline Dam.
Also a hand-carry put-in (launch) at Proud Lake off Wixom Road, if memory serves.

Would I have to carry my boat or could I use a trailer to launch my boat at gallup park?

you can user your trailer in Gallup, it's an actual launch.

Thanks for the help. I will now proceed to tackle some smallies. ;)

Argo park has the best launch on the Huron river. There are dam's on both sides so the fish are trapped. Throw a black tube and you're gonna catch big bass

interesting! I went to argo a few times but felt lost. Do you generally fish the EAST side of the impoundment (where it is deeper)?
pm me maybe!
