NotesAn 1859 law makes navigational waterways in Oregon the property of the State. The 1973 state legislature required the Division of State Lands to study state waterways with an emphasis on navigational waterways. "This report deals with those rivers in Lincoln County which had significant navigation: the Alsea, Yaquina and Siletz" (from the Introduction). Color photographs, historical b/w photographs. Excellent source of historical information on use of rivers.
