About the salamonie river


The Salamonie River is a tributary of the Wabash River, flowing through northeastern Indiana. It is approximately 85 miles long, beginning in Wells County and flowing through Huntington and Wabash counties before joining the Wabash River near Huntington. The river's name is derived from the Miami Indian word for "yellow paint," due to the yellow ochre found along its banks.

The river features several reservoirs and dams, including the Salamonie Lake and the Roush Lake. These reservoirs were constructed by the US Army Corps of Engineers for flood control, recreation, and water supply purposes.

Recreational activities along the Salamonie River include fishing, boating, camping, and hiking, with the area being home to several state parks and wildlife areas. The river also plays a vital role in agriculture, providing irrigation and drainage for the surrounding farmland.
