Middle River/Roanoke River Anchorage – Navigational Detail

All three auxiliary streams west of Roanoke River can be reached by using the thoroughfare located on the northwestern quarter of the Roanoke Bridge. The cut-through holds 5½- to 7-foot depths but is spanned by a portion of the bridge with only 16 feet of vertical clearance. Any craft that cannot clear this height must forgo cruising all these sidewaters.
To enter, cruise south-southwest past the Roanoke Bridge’s central pass-through for 50 yards, then curl around 180 degrees to starboard. Head for the mid-width of the passage on the river’s northwestern shore, which passes back under the bridge. Be careful to avoid the several snags that litter the thoroughfare near the span. Once through, you will be cruising on the narrow but mostly deep waters of the
Eastmost River.
Follow the mid-width of the portside cove from the Eastmost River until you again pass under the Roanoke Bridge. Bear to port and enter the mid-width of the Middle River. As you head into the stream, your course will be flanked by groups of fish stakes both to port and starboard. Point to pass between these hazards.
As you cruise through this initial section of Middle River, don’t be shocked to see a 60-foot reading on your depth sounder. There is a deep hole just upstream of the point where the above described feeder stream and Middle River meet. Wonder what’s down in those murky depths?
Stick to the mid-width as you cruise upstream on the Middle River. You can expect depths of 7 to 25 feet. After traveling some 2 nautical miles, you will spy a small island dividing the stream. Pass the island to its northwestern side only. Do not attempt the southeastern passage. It is choked with growth and debris and is barely discernible from the main shoreline.
