News Release from Lincoln Co. Sheriff's Office
Posted: November 1st, 2017; 6:09 PM

On 11/01/2017, Lincoln County Sheriff's Office Marine Deputies responded to a reported tree blocking the Siletz River between Jack Morgan Park and Strome Park. Deputies located the obstruction at approximately river mile 16.5, a half mile above Strome Park. Deputies determined the tree is blocking the entire river making navigation impossible. Steep banks prevent portage around the obstruction.

The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office is working with the Oregon State Marine Board to mitigate the hazard. Until hazard mitigation is complete, the Siletz River is closed at river mile 16.5. Signs have been posted at Jack Morgan and Strome Parks to advise boaters. An updated release will follow when the river is back open.

You betcha CC. I knew that rain, would begin today. And that boats would then, be out in force soon. Did NOT want to read any bad news, about any floating mishaps.

Tight lines, my friend. TD

11/2/17 Time to hit the rivers hard. Big rains bring the fish in. Two of the fastest dropping Tillamook tribs should be running hard with fish. Good Luck to all. Tony
