DID YOU KNOW?
The Skagit River originates in Canada and flows south and west for 160 miles through the North Cascade Range. It drains 3,130 square miles of watershed and is the third largest river on the West Coast of the contiguous United States. It provides about 20 percent of the fresh water flowing into Puget Sound, or nearly 10 billion gallons a day. The Skagit is the only river system in Washington which supports all five species of pacific salmon. The Skagit contains some of the largest and healthiest wild Chinook salmon runs in Puget Sound and the largest pink salmon stock in Washington. Who is responsible for preserving these treasures for future generations? We are!
