SMITH RIVER HISTORY
Smith River plain, in the Klamath Mountains physiographic province of California, borders the Pacific Ocean in the northwest part of Del Norte County, 400 miles northwest of San Francisco. Cool summers and mild winters characterize the climate of the plain. Normal annual precipitation is about 75 inches. Precipitation is heaviest during the five coldest months, from November through March. Tourists are attracted by recreational facilities that provide for hiking or driving through the many miles of redwood trees (Sequoia sempervirens) and the profusion of wildflowers, including rhododendrons and azaleas that grow to heights of 20 to 30 feet.
Among other attractions are camping, picnicking, and swimming in Jedediah Smith State Park, located in a grove of redwoods on the banks of the Smith River; fishing for trout, steelhead, and salmon in the streams; and fishing in the surf and open sea. The Smith River is the wildest and cleanest river in the country outside of Alaska — indeed, it is one of the cleanest rivers in the world. The river was named for the explorer Jedediah Smith. In 1980, Smith River Alliance was incorporated as a non-profit organization of conservation, sport fishing, recreation, and civic groups united in their support for sound management of the Smith River as a component of both the National and the California Wild and Scenic Rivers systems. Smith River Alliance works with local communities, conservation groups, and government agencies to protect the spectacular forests, rivers, and wildlife of the greater Smith River ecosystem in Northern California. Encompassing ancient redwood forests, crystal clear waterways, and beautiful beaches, we’ve worked for 30 years to safeguard the natural treasures of the Smith River Watershed.
