But the visitors responded and Anyon pulled off fine saves to deny Jordan Parkes, Mark Marshall and Steve Kabba.
Phil Walsh also headed wide when unmarked and Anyon made another superb late stop from Walsh.
Lincoln had the chance to double their lead in stoppage time when Delroy Facey broke away but the veteran slipped at the vital moment and Barnet cleared.
