The Truckee River is a stream in the U.S. states of California and Nevada. The river flows northeasterly and is 121 miles long. The Truckee is the sole outlet of Lake Tahoe and drains ... morepart of the high Sierra Nevada, emptying into Pyramid Lake in the Great Basin. Its waters are an important source of irrigation along its valley and adjacent valleys.
The Truckee River's source is the outlet of Lake Tahoe, at the dam on the northwest side of the lake near Tahoe City, California. It flows generally northeast through the mountains to Truckee, California, then turns sharply to the east and flows into Nevada, through Reno and Sparks and along the northern end of the Carson Range. At Fernley it turns north, flowing along the east side of the Pah Rah Range. It empties into the southern end of Pyramid Lake, a remnant of prehistoric Lake Lahontan, in northern Washoe County in the Pyramid Lake Indian Reservation.
The Truckee River's endorheic drainage basin is about 3,060 square miles (7,900 km2), of which about 2,300 square miles (6,000 km2) are in Nevada. The Middle Watershed is regarded as the 15 miles (24 km) of river and its tributaries from Tahoe City in Placer County, through the Town of Truckee in Nevada County, to the state line between Sierra and Washoe counties. The major tributaries to the Truckee River in California from the Lake Tahoe outlet and heading downstream include: Bear Creek, Squaw Creek, Cabin Creek, Pole Creek, Donner Creek, Trout Creek, Martis Creek, Prosser Creek, the Little Truckee River, Gray Creek, and Bronco Creek. Major lakes and reservoirs in the California part of the watershed include Lake Tahoe, Donner Lake, Independence Lake, Webber Lake, Boca Reservoir, Stampede Reservoir, Prosser Creek Reservoir, and Martis Creek Reservoir. In the Lower Watershed, Steamboat Creek, which drains Washoe Lake, is the major tributary to the Truckee River.
In 2011, both Rand McNally and USA Today declared Sandpoint the “Most Beautiful Small Town” in America. Situated on Lake Pend Oreille with its 100 plus miles of shoreline, the town ... moreis bordered by three mountain ranges, the Selkirk, Cabinet and Bitterroot which rise majestically above. Home to Schweitzer Mountain Resort, the largest ski area in Idaho, Sandpoint is also located along the International Selkirk Loop and 2 National Scenic Byways, Wild Horse Trail and the Pend Oreille Byway.
Not only is Sandpoint a feast for the eyes, it is a town set up to house and entertain year-round guests. Restaurants are abundant, over 60 at last count, catering to a wide variety of tastes from relaxed waterfront cafes to elegant haute cuisine. Should you like to mix fishing with nightlife, there are ample bars, taverns and nightclubs to choose from. Sandpoint’s Arts Alliance has done a noteworthy job of attracting over two-dozen permanent art galleries while there are countless revolving exhibits throughout the summer.
Lake Pend Oreille, over 1000 feet deep in several sections, is perhaps best known for its Kamloops trout, (actually a Gerrard rainbow) first introduced to the lake in 1941 and successfully spawning there ever since. The world record for a non-genetically engineered rainbow trout was granted to Wes Hamlet, who in 1947 caught a 37 pounder in the Lake. That record is still waiting to be broken.
