Hello folks

Does anyone know the dpeth of the inlet or wher I might find a topo map of that area? I poked around online & found that a channel was on average 4- 17' deep and another site showed a max of 26'. I belive that there are spots that due to the current action etc. that may be significantly deeper than that. I have heard that there are holes that might be between 60 & 100' deep. Can anyone confirm or deny that? Are there deep holes along the rocks towards the ocean end and on either side of the bridge abutments?
Thanks!
JD

There are deep holes all around it. And yes some do go that deep. Someplace on here there are maps that somebody posted.


And it was recently dredged so I'm not sure how accurate the maps would be now.

Not sure where you got your info but the inlet is way deeper than that. Perhaps what you read was pertaining to Indian River or Indian River Bay itself. There I would say the channel might run 4-17'.

Speaking very generally it will average 50' +- from the mouth to the western most outside bend with the shallowest water in the 30' range and the deepest over 100.

Then it will shallow up to the teens and twenties until well past the CG station with the exception of the sandbar that lies roughly infront of the new south side housing.

There is better charts then that availalbe IMO. Quite honestly I've never found those charts to be to accurate since the bottom changes, and probally has changed several times since those maps were done.

These are maps from the dredging project. THe first map is what it looked like before the dredged and the second map is what its suppose to look like today. This is for west of the bridge. I'm still trying to find pics of the east side.

I can't say for sure that's even correct. But its what it was suppose to be once the dredging was complete.
