The extremely shallow channel widens out a bit once you get past the entrance, and leads to a secret cove, which has a depth of approximately 25 feet in some places. We nicknamed the area Catfish Cove because the first time we found the spot, we caught several 3-4 pounders using clams.
The best thing about this place is there is a small, isolated tree-covered island perfect for setting up camp on extended trips. The island is so small, we felt at ease letting our dogs off leash to enjoy their freedom. The best part about this spot, is we didn't see a soul during our 10 day stay. Life is good!
Short video of the opening to our little cove taken after we made a run to town for supplies and ice!! The passage winds around like a snake for about 1/2 mile, before you get to the cove.
The following is a pic of the island where we set up camp.
Great spot to tie up our boat! We were surprised to find that the firewood we left from our weekend camping trip (2 months ago) was still unused.

Wouldn't you know it, but we had to cut our first session of fishing short when storm clouds blew in! We had a few showers the first couple of days, but had fantastic weather for the rest of our stay!
Love visiting the estuary this time of year when the water lilies are in full bloom!
Totally enjoyed watching a beautiful pair of swans while we were fishing! They came in fairly close to where we were anchored and I was able to get some descent shots!
Had an awesome time watching this guy dive into the water for little fish! Not really sure what species this is?? Thinking it might be some kind of Kingfisher?
There is nothing more magical than seeing a fine layer of foggy mist that covers the water like a warm blanket just before sunrise! Don and I live for those special moments that upon discovery, take your breath away!
