Hood River Port Jetty
The Port of Hood River would like river users to please refrain from taking rocks from the Hood River Port jetty. For years, port officials had marvelled at how quickly the end of the jetty seemed to be eroding into the river. It turned out that the rocks weren’t sloughing off into the river from wave action but were being taken by Indian fishers who saw the jetty as a convenient source of buoy anchors. After getting so reduced that it was impacting the usability of the jetty, the Port of Hood River rebuilt the structure in 2010. The Port hopes to avoid having to rebuild anytime soon and is asking fishers to please get rocks at another location to ensure that the Port of Hood River jetty will be usable and functional for everyone.
