Thursday, June 15th, marks the last day of the outdoor burning season for most Lane County residents.

High temperatures and elevated fire risk keep the season closed until the fall outdoor burning season begins in early October.

The lower 11 miles of the McKenzie River below the Hayden Bridge - and the McKenzie River upstream from Forest Glen Boat Ramp at Blue River - are restricted to angling with lures and flies only, and all trout must be released.
