Siltcoos River Below Tyee Campground Boat Ramp

A fir tree has fallen and blocks the river bank-to-bank with limbs obstructing navigation.  The Lane County Marine Patrol are seeking a contractor to help mitigate this obstruction so boaters can safely pass through.  The obstruction is just below the Tyee Campground Boat Ramp.  Click on the image to enlarge the map.  You can make out the boat ramp where “Tyee” is written on the road of the image.

 

 

 

Be careful launching at the Wallace Marine Boat Ramp -a large line intersects the end of the ramp.

A line from is attached to the existing obstruction underwater (that’s been there since last fall) and leads to the bank, up the hillside.  Currently, the line is intersecting the boat ramp and is near the surface of the water, so boaters need to have their trim tab high (motor up) far enough to not become entangled.  Use caution when launching.

The obstruction is scheduled to be removed on Wednesday, May 13, prior to the Willamette Queen being returned to the water.

Have a great weekend out on the water!
