San Poil River

Separated from the Columbia River Valley by the Kettle River Mountain Range, the San Poil River mirrors the north-south direction of the adjacent Columbia. Now held back by the Grand Coulee Dam, the lake area of the Columbia River is named after Franklin D. Roosevelt. As the San Poil River heads south, creating a dividing line between the Colville and Okanogan national forests, it joins FDR Lake at the town of Keller. Over its relative short run, the river is among some of the most favorite trout streams in Washington's northeast.
