Disabled angler access map

April 11, 2019

Oregon is recognized for its wide array of fishing opportunities and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) encourages persons with disabilities to experience fishing in Oregon. This means providing angling opportunities for everyone -- from the oldest adult to the youngest child and everyone in between, including people with disabilities. Fortunately, many of the more popular fishing locations across the state are accessible to anglers with disabilities. This map is a guide to these areas.

Use the navigation pane on the left of the map, or simply click the fish icons, to learn more about specific places where there are angling opportunities. The Google-based map highlights 133 sites across Oregon that may be suitable for anglers with physical disabilities. 

Accessibility varies, and some sites may not be suitable for all levels of disability. Many of the sites were designed to provide people with choices about the type of recreational experience and level of personal challenge they prefer. All sites should be approached carefully and with assistance, if needed. If you have suggestions for improvements to this map, please send them to odfw.info@state.or.us
