County: Safety first during boating season
May 24, 2023
Boating season has arrived in the mid-valley and soon, local waterways will be filled with all kinds of watercraft - from kayaks and paddleboards to fishing boats to high-speed ski boats.
Linn County Marine Patrol Deputy Dan Graybill reminds everyone they can enjoy the area's plentiful water resources, if we all follow some simple boating courtesy guidelines.
And, Graybill emphasizes, that means being prepared well before you pull up to one of the many boat ramps on our reservoirs and rivers.
"Number one, make sure your boat maintenance is done before you launch at a ramp," Graybill said.
