COVID-19 Operating Plans
State and federal authorities have provided as much guidance to outfitters as they can for formulating corona virus operating plans. In many cases, where concrete answers could not be provided they have pointed to general or specific guidelines from CDC, OHA or the Governor’s office and have indicated that we use those to make the best possible decisions regarding how to operate. Review general guidelines and find links to resources HERE.
Lower Deschutes River Outfitters Group
A new group has been formed under the umbrella of OOGA to represent the interests of Lower Deschutes River Outfitters & Guides. More information coming soon.
