*The Marine Board is not responsible for Boater Passes or the BLM website for purchasing passes.
The Lower Deschutes River is a limited entry system managed under a multi-agency management plan that
was written in 1993 and supplemented in 1997 to describe permit system
features. The Lower Deschutes River is managed cooperatively by the:
Bureau of Land Management, Oregon State Parks and Recreation, Confederated
Tribes of Warm Springs Reservation, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Oregon Department
of Fish and Wildlife, Oregon State Marine Board, Oregon State Police; and local
governments, with a single representative for Wasco, Sherman and Jefferson
counties and the cities of Maupin, the Dalles and Madras. The agencies
are advised by a working group composed of commercial and non-commercial
boating interest and state, tribal and federal agency representatives.
