Lutz Creek Anchorage – Claiborne’s Review

Lutz Creek makes into the North River’s eastern shore east of marker #159. Depths on this stream have deteriorated steadily over the last 15 years. The soundings pictured on chart 12206 are no longer accurate and, as a matter of fact, have not been correct for many years. Get on the ball, NOAA!
The western mouth of Lutz Creek plays host to a small, charted marsh island, which is now barely visible to the on-the-water visitor. Depths east and even west of this small landmass have now shoaled to 4-foot levels.
On the other hand, it is possible to anchor on the correctly charted tongue of 6- to 7- foot water, just west of Lutz Creek’s westerly mouth with some shelter from northeastern, southeastern, and eastern winds. Don’t even think about stopping here if winds are blowing from the west, southwest, south, or northwest.
By all accounts, this is NOT a foul weather haven! Skippers will find enough room for craft up to 36 feet. The nearby shoreline is completely undeveloped.
