Portage Around Our Dams

Designated portage options are important to the safety of boaters traveling on the Columbia River. Portage around both Rocky Reach and Rock Island Dams are indicated by appropriate signs at the boat launches at Lincoln Rock Park and Kirby Billingsley Hydro Park. Put-in and take-out locations are also shown on our printable portage maps.

Should you need portage assistance, you must make prior arrangements as Chelan PUD does not provide portage services.
