About the washita river


The Washita River is a river in the south-central United States that runs through Oklahoma and Texas. It is approximately 295 miles long and has a drainage basin of 23,040 square miles. The river is named after the Washita Native American tribe who once inhabited the area. The hydrology of the river is characterized by seasonal variations in flow due to precipitation and drought conditions. The Lake Texoma Dam on the Washita River is a major source of hydroelectric power and provides water for irrigation and recreation. Other notable reservoirs on the river include the Foss Reservoir and the Fort Cobb Reservoir. The Washita River is used for recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and camping. It also supports agricultural activities like crop irrigation and livestock watering.
