Anchoring on a delta drop off can be tricky. I usually drop bow anchor out as deep as i can and set one or two stern hooks on the drying shelf. by skiff.These have to hold the whole show come big out flow wind so don't think lunch hook. Getting away is just as much work. pay attention to the tide.Lots of bears and it's their turf. Kiingcome is first nations Without an invitation I doubt you'd be welcomed. there's a small float at the head, before the river for their use. Going up rivers can easily cost a prop but worth it. Take sustenance.s and drift back in the sun. I take a couple of tires along for fenders on log booms. Cut drain holes in the side walls so they fill and sink/drain easily. A tug often comes for a boom at 3 am. If they are nice they'll wake you. That's what GPS alarms are for. Anchoring in reasonable depths needs a retrieval line and float because of cables, boom chains etc. And for your next adventure , check out Roaring Hole Rapids.
