NAVIGABLE RIVERS OF OREGON

Navigable Rivers of Oregon

(1) The State of Oregon, acting by and through its State Land Board, hereby declares, on the basis of investigations and hearings held under ORS 274 .029 and ORS 274 .034, that the Rogue River is a navigable river of the State of Oregon from Grave Creek (River Mile 68.4) to Gold Beach, Oregon, (River Mile 0.0). The Rogue River is navigable by virtue of the fact that on February 14, 1859, it was susceptible of being used in its ordinary condition as a highway for commerce, trade, and travel in the customary modes of trade and travel on water.

NOTE: This determination and declaration applies only to the river reach referred to herein and does not imply that any other reach of the river is navigable or non-navigable pursuant to ORS 274 .029 and 274.034.

(2) The State of Oregon, acting by and through its State Land Board, hereby declares, on the basis of investigations under ORS 274 .029 and 274.034, that the McKenzie River is a navigable river of the State of Oregon from its confluence with the Willamette River to a point known as Dutch Henry Rock, near River Mile 37.

(3) The State of Oregon, acting by and through its State Land Board, hereby declares, on the basis of investigations under ORS 274 .029 and ORS 274 .034, that the Umpqua River is a navigable river of the State of Oregon from its mouth (River Mile 0.0) near Winchester Bay, Oregon, to the head of tidewater (approximately River Mile 28) near Scottsburg, Oregon.
