        Eastham [Creek Anchorage] is so easy. Eastham is good with 8 ft depths north of #4. Upstream about # 7 is fine also if you need more protection or privacy.

        We briefly explored this creek in late August 2009. We only went west into the creek as far as the eastern most anchor symbol on the cruisers net chart above. Depths were as charted but the wind had been from the S to SW at 10-20 knots for several days so wind driven tides could have some effect on the depths we found. We went no further west since the creek was full of crab trap floats. Far too many to permit unobstructed swing room with 5:1 scope. We also think the eastern most anchorage symbol location is more exposed to wind than the chart would indicate. The tree line seemed further away from shore than we expected. The eastern most anchorage could be a comfortable anchorage in settled conditions. The western most anchorage could be comfortable when the crab traps are not present.

        We anchored in Upper Gale Creek April 19, 2012. Very pleasant night, well protected. We found a spot with 6 1/2 feet of water between a few crab pots.
