Description Originating at the edge of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area in central Washington, the beautiful Teanaway River watershed represents some of the highest quality streams and cold-water fish spawning and rearing areas in the Yakima River Basin. The name "Teanaway" comes from a Native American word meaning "place of fish and berries."

After learning that summer water temperatures were too warm for some types of fish in the river, Teanaway residents and several groups collaborated to protect this unique valley and restore the river water to cooler, more fish-friendly temperatures.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
