Kirkleagh or the Spit are the main launch points for Somerset. Just watch the weather this time of year. Its not a dam to be on if an afternoon storm comes rolling through. The range can hide any storms rolling in from the west until they are almost on you.

Fitzy has lots of info here

With the number of boats and Jetskis there during the warmer weather I wouldn't recommend kayaking from either the Spit or Kirkleigh.  Wivenhoe is a much better destination for a yakker.

You can launch from the road right next to the lake near Villenueve Bridge. Not an endorsed access point, but there seems to be little done about half the workers at Kilcoy Abattoir fishing there every day. Can probably back a boat in if you've got a 4x4 & the lake is full.
