Boating season is starting and people hauling both motorized and non-motorized boats must stop at watercraft inspection stations opening around Oregon next week. Look for large, orange ”Boat Inspection Ahead” signs followed by ”Inspection Required for All Watercraft” alerts for motorists.
Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife inspection stations in Ashland and Ontario are now open year-round. Stations open today in Brookings, Klamath Falls and Umatilla, while stations in Lakeview and Burns open in May . . .
