river anchoring

Was wondering what sort of anchoring system was preferred by fishermen using small to medium sized sleds in larger steelhead/salmon rivers. The boat has a center console, so I've been thinking a remote system of some kind would allow dropping the rock wherever/whenever the operator wants. I've watched a few boats drop through a pool off the initial anchor point, then power back up afterwards, and it seemed super efficient from a fishing point of view, though the power winch must have been very powerful/expensive. Any opinions on this kind of set-up or other, or product names/sources?
I don't mind low tech, but I'm trying to keep the decks as clear as possible for fly lines, dogs, and bare feet.
