I just purchased sea eagle 385ft fishing inflatable fishing Kayak. I am intending to fish the Trinity River outside Redding Calif. This is a small river but moves a little fast in some areas and is lazy in other areas. Rocky river bottom.

My question is will the folding 1-2 lb anchor work in a river with a little white water here and there. I need to stop in faster areas of a funnel and fish the hole on going in. Thanks for any advise; I am new here as of today. I will send smoked Salmon the the suggestion that works best.

Don’t anchor
Ground out on a ledge or rock, but don’t anchor a kayak in swift water is my advice.

That was pretty much my thoughts too and the reason it led me to the question. Thank you very much for your reply.

Its fine
I anchor in the umpqua all the time. So does my dad abd we have no problems. But no a one-two pound anchor won’t do anything. My dad has an inflatable pontoon boat and we rigged up a 5lb kettle bell and that stops him just fine. I use a 10 pounder personally.

It’s been nice knowing you.
When something does go wrong with that, it will go wrong fast. Be prepared.
