Lane County Marine Patrol reported a fallen fir tree that lays bank-to-bank on the McKenzie River below Deer Creek.

Paddlers can get through a narrow passage, however there are tree limbs that could lead to entanglement.

This is on US Forest Service land and their representatives contacted the Marine Patrol to assess the obstruction.  The Marine Patrol deemed this a potential hazard that warrants mitigation

The Forest Service will hire a contractor to cut the limbs and cut what they can of the trunk to allow for safe passage.
