The river has a rich history, with evidence of Native American settlements dating back over 10,000 years. In more recent times, the river was used for milling and transportation of goods. Today, there are several reservoirs and dams on the Rush River, including the Martell and El Paso Dams, which produce hydroelectric power. Agricultural activities in the area include dairy farming and crop production, while recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and camping are popular along the river's banks.
