There is controversy in Oregon as to what constitutes
a "navigable river".

If a river is "navigable" then the state of Oregon retains
interest in the land under the river as well as a defined
portion of the banks of the river.

Why can't Ranchers and Rafters all just get along?

In any case maybe a unit of measurement might be helpful.
I propose "The Fitzcarraldo", familiarly, the "Fitz".

As in: The Deschutes River just South of Smith Rocks State
Park in central Oregon has a navigability of 3.2 Fitz.
