Entrance to Oak Canyon


Well-Known Member
This Thursday we're thinking about dropping anchor for the night in the mouth of Oak Canyon. But we've been there with bad flies and bad smells. Other times it's been fine. Anyone been there recently?

Do you mean Oak Bay? Upstream from Rainbow? It’s a good spot, can be pretty windy in the prevailing winds earlier in the year. Last time I was there the bay was mostly gone, and the big swamp basins we’re dry.

Not sure how deep you are ok with anchoring, but it shelf’s pretty dramatically into the channel. In by the bathroom is your best bet, or along the east side.
