Anchorages around Thurlow Islands and Sonora Island British Columbia

Hoping to get some info on any anchorages for a trip I am planning for end of July-Aug. I know there are a handful of fishing lodges I can stay at but has anyone found some good places to anchor around these areas:

West and East Thurlow Island
Sonora Island
Philips Arm
Maurelle Island

We are planning to get some fishing in and hoping not to tie up every night. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated !

Thanks

Ryan

Have you read Waggoners and the Dreamspeaker books? They cover that entire coast?

Waggoners is available online, too.

Good luck.

Thanks Stu

I have an older Copy of the Waggoner and it didn't have much for that area for anchoring. I will download the new version and see if there has been much added.

Cordero Islands is a good anchorage.

Also Waiatt Bay and Octopus Islands

Just look on Active Captain. That far south the good spots are all pretty well covered.
