South River/Lukens Anchorage – Navigational Detail

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 07-24-2012

Use chart 11541 for entry into South River. Set course from a position about halfway between markers #6 and #7 to come abeam of marker #1, which denotes the South River’s entrance, by 25 yards to its southwestern side. Then set course to pass marker #2 fairly close on its northeastern side. Immediately after passing #2, bend your course to a more southern track and pass markers #WR3 and #5 fairly close to their western sides. Once past #5, simply stay within shouting distance of the river’s midsection. Minimum depths of 8 feet can be carried for several miles upstream.
Some 1.2 nautical miles past #5, you will encounter marker #6 near the river’s southwestern shore. This aid to navigation marks the
entrance to Big Creek, home of a fish-processing house. Ease towards the eastern banks before coming abeam of #6 to find your way to the South River/Lukens anchorage. Be SURE to stay at least 200 yards west of the banks for best depths.
