The Applegate River is a 51-mile long tributary of the Rogue River located in southern Oregon. The river was named after Lindsay Applegate, who led a group of settlers on the Applegate Trail in 1846. The Applegate River flows through the Siskiyou Mountains and has a diverse hydrology with stretches of rapids and calm pools. There are several reservoirs and dams along the river, including Applegate Reservoir and Applegate Dam, which were built in the 1980s for flood control and hydroelectric power generation. The river is used for recreational activities such as fishing, kayaking, and hiking, and supports agriculture in the surrounding areas. The river also plays an important role in providing habitat for a variety of fish species, including Chinook salmon and steelhead.
