Outing Leader: Mark Conner
At over 100 miles, the Klickitat River, located in Southeastern Washington, is one of the state’s longest free flowing rivers from its glacial source to its confluence with the Columbia River. The river originates in the snow capped peaks of Mount Adams, a 12, 276-ft. active volcano. This renowned Pacific Northwest steelhead and salmon stream gains momentum quickly, dropping approximately 5,000 feet in elevation over its course. 100 year old “character” Oregon White Oak trees ornament the hillsides of the river gorge. The Klickitat provides passage and spawning grounds for a variety of native anadromous fish, predominantly spring and fall runs of Chinook Salmon but also Coho (Silver) Salmon.
The Outings Fee is $25 and covers all the food from Saturday breakfast through Sunday lunch.
