Luckily for me I have a friend who currently works for ODFW doing salmon surveys on the Trask, Siletz, and Siuslaw Rivers. He also used to work for Plum Creek. Today he told me that Weyco will NOT be charging permits to use the Siletz Gorge. They're keeping it the same as Plum Creek, open to hike in only during the week days and drive in weekends and fridays after 5:00pm. As you guys could guess us locals are pretty pleased with this now if only they'll keep all the timber lands open.
