The Rogue Flyfishers and a local landowner have petitioned the Marine Board to ban Jet Boats and Air Boats from the Rogue River starting from the bridge at Top Velle State Park going upstream to the dam. The motivating factor is the safety of the river users with the increasing jet boat activity. There are other concerns such as damage to fish and wildlife as well as the riparian areas.
Here is a link to the public notice that outlines how the process works going forward.
Don't wait for someone else to do it, get your written comments in today, now, ASAP.
Here is a link to the actual petition.
