    Information from John is perfect and recommend heeding his warning upon entry into Lake Sylvia. This is a very well protected anchorage with a largely mud bottom. Local law recently said to include provision that boats not anchor within 100 yards of surrounding shores with homes.

    This is currently a free anchorage. Access is challenging for deeper draft vessels. Enter hugging the east wall until three quarters of the way into the mouth, then move over to the west of the channel. As you enter into the body of the lake it is safe to move towards the center and look for a slot. This is a popular anchorage and can get quite busy. The anchorage is a shared use space so do not be surprised to see water skiers and motor boats moving through at speed. Those persons using tenders should ensure that they comply with local equipment and marking requirements.
