SPRINGFIELD, Ore. – Two trees are down across nearly the entire width of the McKenzie River about a mile upstream of Bellinger Landing, Lane County Sheriff’s Office Marine Patrol deputies warned Wednesday.

“At current river levels, drift boats may be able to pass if they stay river right; however any movement of the trees or changes in the water levels could make the area impassable,” the sheriff’s office said.

For safety, boaters are being asked to avoid the area and put in at or below Bellinger, or take out before they reach the obstruction, which has been reported to the Oregon State Marine Board.
