About the little blue river
The Little Blue River is a river in the central United States. It runs through northeastern Kansas and southeastern Nebraska, and it is approximately 65 miles long. The river was named for the bluish tint of its water, which is caused by limestone deposits in the area. The Little Blue River has a rich history, having been used by Native American tribes for hunting and fishing. Today, the river is used for recreation, including fishing, kayaking, and camping. It is also an important source of water for agriculture, with several reservoirs and dams along its course, including the Lovewell Dam and Reservoir and the Milford Dam and Reservoir. These reservoirs provide irrigation water for crops and help to regulate the flow of the river.
