River Summary: The Yadkin River is a major river in North Carolina, originating in the Blue Ridge Mountains and flowing through the Piedmont region before emptying into the Pee Dee River. It is approximately 215 miles long and has a drainage basin of 7,221 square miles. The river has a rich history, having been utilized by Native Americans for thousands of years and later becoming a vital source of power for textile mills and other industries. Today, the river is managed by several hydroelectric dams and reservoirs, including the High Rock Lake and Badin Lake, which provide recreational opportunities for fishing, boating, and swimming. Additionally, the river is used for agricultural purposes, primarily for irrigation of crops. Despite occasional pollution from nearby industries, the Yadkin River remains an important natural resource for the state of North Carolina.
