It varies, there is a lot of sand movement. And occasional dredging. So it varies by location and also over time.

In general, 8-14 feet on the creek side. Shallower in the elbow. Deeper as you go out. Deeper as you go out on the lake side. 20+ off the end of the pier.

Channel is maybe 14-18

There's a small hole where the entrance to the Washington Park Marina is

Now we face the question whether a still higher 'standard of living' is worth its cost in things natural, wild and free. For us of the minority, the opportunity to see geese is more important than television.”
