  • Anchoring raft question

    What works best for anchoring a raft to bounce eggs or fish sections of easy flowing water? ( Deshka, Gulkana, etc)
    I am thinking about anchors similar to what drift boats / cats use. Does a pyrimid lead work best, or will about anything that you can get to hold. I like the idea of the pyrimid lead as it is smaller than putting a bigger anchor & chain in a 14' raft. Any suggestions on what set up has worked well vs what hasn't.

    I use a wire mesh bag filled with river rocks.
    Works fine, lasts a long time.

    Have saw others using pyramid lead and other shapes. All seem to work.
    While not a definitive answer to your question, I'm not certain there is a "best anchor" for rafts.
    Perhaps my anchor is the worst, but seem to function well.
    Sometimes simply works.
    Imagine (It's easy if you try)
    …miles and miles of mountains…wide expanses of tundra...remote wild waters…

      I was kind of thinking the same thing. As long as you can get the rocks to hold I think it would work just fine. Might have to try it next weekend & see.
