Boaters now have easy access to the Siletz River off Highway 229 thanks to the addition of a new boat slide designed by Oregon State Marine Board engineers and patterned after an ODFW design.

ODFW provided $295,575 in U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Sport Fish Restoration funds, and the Marine Board added another $80,225 in state boater funds for the 107-foot slide built with 60 cubic yards of concrete, 10,000 pounds of steel and 260-square feet of cedar lumber. Lincoln County contributed $35,00 cash and in-kind services.

The slide will accommodate drift boats, canoes and kayaks, and there are 16 boat trailer spaces along with eight single car spaces at the ramp site.

The ramp should provide a good eight months of access to excellent fishing opportunities, according to Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists. In the fall, the first rains can mean productive fall chinook and coho salmon fishing into December, and anglers can use the ramp to pursue winter steelhead through March and eventually summer steelhead into June.
