The Methow River is beautiful as it curves and winds thru the valley. Many place to stop and fish, picnic or just enjoy the scenery.. Makes the visit to this area memorable.

It is a very nice town to take a walk, access river, eateries, restaurants, etc. It is great to stay a night and just relax enjoying couple of hours in the evening while on cascade loop trip.

Wife and I floated river with fishing guide Clint Griffen. The river was high at about 5000 cfs. So big, dirty and fast.Though conditions were not ideal the river was beautiful. This is a great fly fishing river you should try.

We have seen the river from various spots, and it's such a wonderful area to explore, cross the bridges, and sit on a picnic bench to relax. Even in August the water was high.
