Yakima River
This beautiful river meanders from Lake Keechelus through Cle Elum and Ellensburg to Yakima. The river provides for a beautiful and scenic drive, or a serene place to enjoy a picnic, float a tube, raft, kayak, canoe or simply listen to the birds along the shore. It is also the only Blue Ribbon river in the state offering some of the best fly fishing in the west. The river is split into two sections by the Diversion Dam. Launch points exist in both regions. The lower section ends at Roza Dam, just south of Ellensburg. 

Two stretches of the river are considered dangerous and floating them is hazardous. Attempting to navigate over the diversion dam and floating from Irene Rinehart Park to the Ringer Road boat lunch should not attempted 

There are several launch points along the Yakima River: 

Upper Region: East Nelson WA St.; South Cle Elum Bridge; State Boat Launch (East Cle Elum Wildlife Launch); Rill Adventures. 

Lower Region: Diversion; KOA; Rinehart Park; Ringer Road; Big Horn; Umptanum; Red's Fly Shop; Lmuma Creek; The Slab.
