Salmon Creek/Chowan River Anchorage – Claiborne’s Review

Salmon Creek, near the mouth of Chowan River, well southwest of marker #2CR, makes a fair overnight anchorage, but water levels have shoaled on this stream during the last decade or so. Minimum depths of 6 feet can now be expected only as far as the second point of land making in from the southerly banks. Past this point, soundings rise to 4 feet or sometimes considerably less. Consider setting the hook just short of the second southern entrance point, where there is plenty of swinging room for boats up to 42 feet in length and fair protection from all but northern and northeastern winds. There is a large industrial plant on the creek’s southern shore, but the rest of the banks are undeveloped.
