The Skagit River is a true Pacific Northwest wonder. Photo opportunities abound with emerald waters, dense green forests, snowcapped mountains in the distance, and abundant bald eagles and salmon.

Boaters have their choice of the Goodell Creek section, which has gentle rolling rapids, and one exciting wave-filled S-turn. This rapid called the “S-Bends” may be considered a Class IV when the river reaches 5,000 CFS.

The ten-mile stretch past Marblemount enters the Skagit River Bald Eagle Natural Area, where bald eagles nest in the winter, dining on spawning salmon. This protected area is home to the largest gathering of these majestic birds in the Lower 48. While this area might not be known for heart-pounding whitewater, it is definitely worth the trip for those who have a fascination with wildlife and classic Northwest scenery.
