Because of river width, high dock density, and history of high boater use, the Newberg Pool of the Willamette River (River Miles 26.6 to 55) has unique boating regulations. These rules require additional education credentials for all towed watersports participants, restricts certain boating-related activities for distances to structures, and restricts wake surfing. More details are provided in the images below.
