West of Plymouth, the Roanoke is eventually bisected by a long, undeveloped, oval-shaped island. The main channel borders the island’s southern quarter and soon meets up with a large pulp mill described. The northern cut holds 6- to 8-foot depths behind the island and is an excellent spot to drop the hook, provided you can stand the pulp and paper smell. There is enough swinging room for a 34-footer. Protection should be adequate for all winds short of a full gale.
