The Lane County Sheriff’s Office is advising the public of a water obstruction on the McKenzie River in the Blue River area. A log is obstructing the river-right channel near River Mile 62.5 (close to the area of McKenzie River Dr. and Mill Creek Rd.) This obstruction is difficult to see from upstream. Boaters are encouraged to use extreme caution and stay to the left side of the channel when passing.
