Disabled angler access map

Many of the more popular fishing locations across the state are accessible to anglers with disabilities. ODFW tries to keep the information on this map current but it's always best to check with the waterbody manager for the latest information before going fishing. ‌

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 sites across Oregon that may be suitable for anglers with physical disabilities. ‌

More information about outdoor areas with disabled access is available in the Access Oregon publication, Please note this publication was last updated several years ago so some information is not current. ‌‌

Anglers with a disabilities permit can fish from an anchored boat, or other floating device, in places where fishing from a boat is prohibited by ODFW. They can also receive assistance fishing form another person. Learn more and apply for the disabilities permit. ‌‌
