River Summary: The Skagit River is a 150-mile-long river located in northwest Washington state. It has a rich history dating back to the indigenous people who resided in the area and relied on the river for sustenance. The river's hydrology is characterized by glacial meltwater from the surrounding mountains, resulting in high flow rates in the spring and low flow rates in the summer. The Skagit River supports various recreational activities such as fishing, kayaking, and rafting. The river also plays a crucial role in the region's agriculture, providing irrigation water for crops such as potatoes, berries, and tulips. The Skagit River is home to several reservoirs and dams, including the Ross, Diablo, and Gorge dams, which provide hydroelectric power and regulate river flows for irrigation and flood control purposes.
