About the klickitat river

The Klickitat River in Washington state is a 75-mile-long tributary of the Columbia River. Historically, the river was important to Native American tribes such as the Yakama and Klickitat, who relied on the river for fishing and transportation. The river's hydrology is characterized by high flows in the spring and early summer, followed by lower flows in the fall and winter. The river is home to several dams and reservoirs, including the Laurance Lake Reservoir and the Box Canyon Dam. These structures provide hydroelectric power and irrigation water for local agriculture. The river is also a popular destination for recreational activities such as fishing, kayaking, and rafting.
