New Bill Would Require Permits for Deschutes River

A new waterway bill that’s passed both the Oregon State Senate and House, will require people using any non-motorized watercraft longer than ten feet to pay a fee to use them on the Deschutes River. That would include kayakers and stand up paddle boarders if they’re craft is over 10 feet in length.

Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan has the latest details.
