Boat Operations on Ochoco and Prineville Reservoirs in Crook County

NOTE: "Towed equipment" applies to surfboarding and other types of towed equipment, as well as water skiing.

(1) Except on safe take-offs and landings, boats with skiers and other types of towed equipment must keep 200 feet or more from shore. If a safe landing as defined in these rules is not possible, skiers must be picked up by the boat before coming within the 200-foot-from-shore line and brought to shore under the established speed restrictions (5 MPH within 200 feet of shore). Boats towing skiers may exceed 5 MPH to the extent necessary to maintain the skiers in a skiing position within 200 feet from the shore line only when taking off or landing under safe conditions as outlined in this section. However, boats may not exceed the 5 MPH speed restriction, including the take-off and landing of skiers in tow, in the areas listed in section (2) of this rule:

(a) A "safe" take-off or landing with a skier in tow is accomplished by leaving or approaching the take-off or landing site within an arc which has its center at the take-off or landing site and which is not closer than 45 degrees out from the shore on either side. It is not a "safe" landing to approach a landing site parallel to the shore line. Take-offs and landings should be made in a counter-clockwise pattern. A take-off or landing will not be considered safe unless it can be accomplished without risk to the safety of any swimmers or other watercraft;

(b) No boat shall follow behind a skier closer than 300 feet, nor cross the towing boat less than 200 feet, nor alongside a skier closer than 100 feet.

(2) No person shall operate a motorboat at a speed in excess of 5 MPH in the following areas:

(a) Within 200 feet of the shore line (except under conditions authorized in section (1) of this rule);

(b) Within 200 feet of a marked swimming area;

(c) Within 200 feet of a launching ramp;

(d) Within the cove located to the west of Ochoco State Park on Ochoco Reservoir, where the State Park Boat Launching Ramp and county floats are located;

(e) East of a line from the point east of the Ochoco Boat Rentals across Ochoco Reservoir to a spot marked on the south side. Markers are identified as orange-colored and tripod shaped.

(f) Within the cove area where the Ochoco Boat Rentals moorage is located and designated by a buoy south of the moorage and an orange-colored tripod marker on the point of land east of the moorage;

Boating and Water Skiing on Lake of the Woods in Klamath County

(1) No person shall operate a motorboat at a speed in excess of Slow--No Wake, maximum 5 MPH, or with a water skier under tow, while within Forest Service approved and marked swimming areas adjacent to summer camps and public campgrounds, or while within 200 feet of any dock or shore, except for a "safe" take-off or landing. *

NOTE: (*) A safe take-off or landing is accomplished within an arc which has its center at the take-off or landing site and which is not closer than 45 degrees out from the shore line on either side. It is not a "safe" landing to approach a landing site parallel to the shore line. Take-offs and landings should be made in a counter clockwise pattern. A take-off or landing will not be considered safe unless it can be accomplished without risk to any swimmers or other watercraft. If a safe landing as thus defined is not possible, skiers must be picked up by the boat before coming within the 200 feet from the shore or dock line, and brought to shore under the usual speed restrictions. Boats towing skiers may exceed the 5 MPH speed limit to the extent necessary to maintain skier in a skiing position within the 200 feet from shore or dock, only when taking off or landing under "safe" conditions as outlined in this section.

(2) No person shall operate a motorboat in excess of 20 MPH between the hours of one our after sunset and one hour before sunrise. Boats must show the proper lights during these hours.
