The problem with the entrance to the Ortega River is the approach. It is very difficult to get the right line heading for the first mark. Coming out is a lot easier. My first time in I was anchored out the night before because I was a bit wary. A boat drawing six or seven grounded and Towboat US came out, got her off and towed her in. I watched all this on my radar overlaid on my chart (brand new toys then) and the next morning followed the towboat's track in. No problem, I draw 5 1/2.
