No instream Water Use permit

http://www.state.or.us/OWRD/WR/index.shtml

In-channel mining activities that affect, but do not divert, water do not generally require a water use permit. This would include some common mining activities such as using a sluice box or suction dredge within the wetted perimeter of the stream.


They omit to explain miners have a granted water right to divert, not subject to permit or "limited license" but subject to prior appropriation for mining.

Examples of mining activities outside of the wetted perimeter include high banking or placer mining. This type of activity generally requires the use of water to dislodge rock material or move sediment. Since this involves the diversion and use of water, this type of mining would require a water right.
