    Was reading a review by BRAD KILPATRICK of a creek just south of Grants Pass north of Cave Junction and I was wondering if you can use a dredger in this location???

    Go to Oregon DEQ website, look up the 700PM permit interactive map for dredging. If it shows red, then closed to dredging.

    Even if still open, there will still be a season that it's open. That varies from area to area.

    Open seasons can be found at the DSL site for the state.

    Even in closed to dredging waters, you can pan and sluice all year.

    Google: 700PM interactive map. Should be first choice that comes up.

    Fast look, virtually every waterway in that area is totally closed to dredging, classified as Essential Salmon Habitat..

    Sluice and pan allowed all year

    Looked for a review in the on-line guide from him, and didn't see anything for the listed claims.

    More info needed, if you don't want to put on a public forum, contact me privately.

    Thanks that worked out great, looks like they don't want you to dredge anywhere.

    Yep, that's the plan by the powers that be.

    The only thing open to dredging are waters that have no fish passage, ie, a dam with no fish ladder, or a waterfall that they can't get over.

    Now that they have that, and all 303d listed waters closed, they're after to the rest. They'll get that in the next few years.

    On the permit application you have to list GPS coordinates, down to three decimal points, using their map. Now they know how many permits are in each area. Next step is to start with the most popular spot and figure out a reason to close it.....like they did last year out of Cottage Grove. They made mention of Quartzville, so I expect that's next on the list. Can still use up to 4" there, in season.

    Unless you have the permit, prepare for sticker shock. And have heard of people getting billed for the next year, even if not planning on renewing, and sent to collections if not paid.
