This large river, a tributary of the Yakima River is eventually joined by the Bumping River. It is adjacent to Chinook Scenic Byway (SR-410) and is very accessible, close to campgrounds. Excellent whitefish angling during the special winter whitefish-only season. The Naches River basin is rugged mountains and wilderness. Historically it was an important travel corridor between the east and west side of the Cascade Mountain Range via Naches Pass.
