About the wynoochee river


The Wynoochee River is a 42-mile-long river in western Washington, United States. It originates in the Olympic Mountains and flows northwest into Wynoochee Lake, which is created by the Wynoochee Dam. The river then continues west and eventually flows into the Chehalis River near Aberdeen. The Wynoochee River is primarily used for hydroelectric power generation, with the Wynoochee Dam being the main source of power. The reservoir created by the dam is also used for recreational activities such as fishing, camping, and boating. The river has a rich history, with the Wynoochee Dam being built in the 1970s to provide power to the growing population of western Washington. The river also supports various agricultural activities along its banks. Despite the dam's benefits, it has had negative impacts on the river's ecosystem, including a decline in fish populations.
