    We anchored here last night with two other boats ( two 42 foot trawlers and a 39 foot sailboat). Depths got very shallow well before the Sage plant, Don’t go too far past the old decrepit tour boat moored at a dock on the northern shore. We saw three nearly submerged piles towards the southern shore as we came into the creek entrance so stay in the center. As mentioned by others, the dinghy ride up the creek is marvelous. Fall is a nice time to visit Salmon Creek.
