The river played a significant role in the history of the area, serving as a major transportation route for goods and people during the 19th century. Today, the river is used for recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and swimming. The river's hydrology is affected by several reservoirs and dams, including the Enid Lake, the Grenada Lake, and the Sardis Lake. These reservoirs provide flood control, hydroelectric power, and water supply for irrigation and municipal use. The Yalobusha River basin is also home to several agricultural communities that rely on the river for irrigation and crop production.
