The Columbia, Methow and Okanogan rivers, and Lake Rufus Woods (behind Chief Joseph Dam), are an angler’s dream. Brewster offers a public boat launch and dock in Columbia Cove Park where anglers can drop a line for salmon, steelhead, trout, sturgeon and smallmouth bass. The annual BudweiserLowrance King Salmon Derby is the first weekend in August; participants can win both prizes and money. People who want to take a boat or personal watercraft out for a spin will find plenty of open water on the Columbia, Okanogan and Methow rivers. Columbia Cove Park offers a beach for swimming and splashing, a playground, picnic areas, a newly remodeled basketball court and a soccer pitch. The municipal pool has a waterslide and diving boards, and next door is the Columbia Cove Recreation Center. Brewster has expanded its city RV park to include 34 total sites. The hills around town provide plenty of opportunities for a nice afternoon walk, and experienced bird he Chronicle watchers /T all rsh Ma r ife Jenn know that

Brewster is a prime spot to observe feathered friends, from eagles to quail. The back roads are good for long or short afternoon drives, and there are opportunities on public lands for four-wheeling, motorbikes and horseback riding. Two golf courses – Alta Lake and Lake Woods – are within a dozen miles of town. Visitors can stroll in Brewster’s retro downtown and pick up a snack in one of the downtown eateries. Dining fare ranges from Mexican to burgers and other choices. Shoppers will find a variety of stores. The Fourth of July brings a parade and other events, plus one of the biggest fireworks shows in the area. Brewster owes its name to a decision made by U.S. Post Office worker who, in the 1890s, changed the spelling from Bruster. Originally the town followed the steamboat landing. The old three-story Gamble Hotel was moved from one Main Street to another with a horse team and logs, and legend has it the hotel owner kept the fire in the kitchen stove burning the whole time. The city became a crucial part of Washington’s apple industry. Tours of some local apple processing facilities may be available by appointment. Nearby is Fort Okanogan Park and Interpretive Center, site of one of the first non-Indian settlements in Washington. The fort was established in 1811 by David Stuart of the Pacific Fur Co. and later purchased by the Hudson’s Bay Co. Elevation: 820 feet Population: 2,370 Incorporated: 1910 Location: On U.S. Highway 97 near the confluence of the Okanogan and Columbia rivers, about seven miles north of Pateros and 26 miles south of Okanogan.

Bridgeport Hydropower, fishing and water sports are top draws Nestled beside the mighty Columbia, Bridgeport sits just downstream from Chief Joseph Dam. The dam, one of the largest hydropower projects in the world, has a visitor center detailing some of the history of the project and the surrounding area, and how the hydropower system works. Bridgeport boasts great fishing and boating on Lake Rufus Woods, hiking around the dam, golfing at Lake Woods Golf Course and camping at Bridgeport State Park. Some of the hiking trails are paved. A new Colville tribal fish hatchery opened in 2013 just downstream from the dam, and a visitor’s area and playground can be found nearby. Anglers know Bridgeport for Lake Rufus Woods and its trout fishing and the Columbia River downstream for salmon, steelhead, trout and various sport fish populations. Nearby is the Okanogan River. Water skiers, paddlers and personal watercraft also can be seen on the waters, and wildlife watchers will find eagles, otters,

beavers, badgers, quail and other fowl. There’s a boat launch and places to fish from the shore above the dam and a boat launch below the dam at Bridgeport Marina Park, which is a popular spot for RV users as well. Horseback, motorbike and ATV riding opportunities also exist. For those who like their water in a pool, Bridgeport offers a pool in Berryman Park, which also is a good place for a picnic and has lots of swings and slides. There’s also the exhibit of military equipment, including a helicopter. Downtown Bridgeport offers cafes, grocery stores, a public library, a laundry and a couple of places that are happy to provide plenty of free fishing advice. Foster Creek Avenue is lined with animals carved from tree trunks. The annual celebration, Bridgeport Daze, is the first weekend in June. There’s a parade, music, a basketball tournament and a market square in Fireman Park. In the summer months, you

grown produce and other goods at the farmers market Friday mornings in Fireman Park. Bridgeport marked its centennial of incorporation as a town in 2010, although the community is older than that. It was platted in the 1890s, and its backers originally named it Westfield. The townsite was purchased by a group of investors from Bridgeport, Conn., and the new name stuck even after the investors moved on. Bridgeport was the last stop on the

steamboat run; the old flour mill down by the river is a reminder of the days when wheat and apples were loaded from the bluff. Apples, cherries, wheat and cattle play a big part in the town’s economy. Elevation: 835 feet Population: 2,409 Incorporated: 1910 Location: On state Highway 17, 13 miles southeast of Brewster.

Conconully Tiny town boasts plenty of recreational opportunities Not many small towns can boast the amount of recreational opportunities tiny Conconully has to offer. With a population of 210, Conconully features an abundance of outdoor activities and festivals, ranging from snowmobiling and all-terrain vehicle riding to fly fishing, sled dog races, food festivals and even an outhouse race. Tucked into a mountain valley and surrounded by parks and lakes, the hamlet is home to many types of wildlife. Deer wander through town. Birdwatchers can get their fill by keeping an eye on the skies. Conconully State Park borders Conconully Reservoir (the lower lake) and offers camping sites, picnicking and playground equipment, a boat launch and plenty of room to run. Conconully Lake (or Salmon Lake, the upper lake) also has a boat launch, restrooms and a disabled-accessible fishing dock. Both offer resorts; boats and motors can be rented at various local businesses. The area, surrounded by national and state forests with two wildlife management areas nearby, is ideal for hunters and anglers. Lodging and RV sites are abundant, offering early breakfasts, trail lunches, snacks, fuel, supplies, fishing supplies and other items to make the visitor’s experience more enjoyable. Both lakes are stocked annually by the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, with the town and chamber of commerce pitching in to purchase larger fish. Each year also features a trout derby for families shortly after fishing season opens in April. For nature enthusiasts, the area offers trails, such as the Mutton Creek Trail, good for all

Peacock Meadows Sno-Park is a jumping-off point for hiking and winter sports, including snowmobiling. Conconully allows snowmobiles and ATVs on designated streets. The Independence Day Celebration brings the Old West back to life with a parade, children’s games, firefighters’ competitions, antique car show and the infamous Berney Gang gunfight. Each January, the snowcovered streets are turned into the Outhouse Race course, in a competition that will celebrate its 32nd running in 2015. January also brings the Snow Dog Super Mush, a twoday, mid-distance sled dog race through the forests around Conconully. The event attracts mushers from throughout the Northwest, surrounding states and Canada. Other activities include the Cowboy Caviar Fete (testicle festival), Stew and Brew, Miners Days and “hall mall” arts and crafts shows in the Community Hall. Originally known as Salmon

Coulee area Experience the natural and man-made wonders The Grand Coulee Dam area lets you experience the wonders of nature, coupled with manmade wonders. Grand Coulee Dam, one of the largest concrete structures in the world, attracts viewers and tourists each year with tours, history, the Laser Light Show and fireworks displays. The dam is 550 feet tall, from the 500-foot polished granite base to the 30-foot wide crest that supports a paved twolane road. Because of security concerns, the road is closed except for occasional special events. Including the Third Powerhouse, Grand Coulee Dam is almost one mile long. There is enough concrete in the dam to build a four-lane highway the 3,000 miles from Los Angeles to New York City. Construction began in 1933 as a Depression relief project. Eight years later, the dam was complete, leaving behind a monumental sand pile still visible today. It is the largest producer of hydroelectric energy in the U.S. The dam also irrigates more than 500,000 acres of farms through Lake Roosevelt, its reservoir, and a subsidiary system of reservoirs and

canals. The dam’s visitor center overlooks the downstream dam wall. It is open year-round just off state Highway 155. Tours take place in summer. Laser Light Shows run from May through September after dark. Catch some great vistas from Crown Point, about two miles west of Coulee Dam off state Highway 174. A state Discover Pass is required to park there. The area is known for geological wonders; prehistoric floods carved out the coulee, showing its layers of basalt rock. A walking tour of Coulee Dam shows historic buildings from the dam’s construction era. For the angler, hunter, swimmer, boater, camper and picnic lover, visit one of the many lakes and campsites spread throughout the area. Lake Roosevelt itself, kept back by the dam, has many boat docks, fishing spots, campsites and more. Spring Canyon, about two miles east of Grand Coulee on state Highway 174, features a grassy park, sandy beaches, designated swimming space, playground equipment, restrooms, barbecue pits and more. The lake is stocked with kokanee (landlocked salmon), walleye, silvers, rainbow trout, lake whitefish, white sturgeon and yellow perch.

Mansfield ‘Town at the end of the rails’ centers on agriculture Known as “the town at the end of the rails,” Mansfield is an agricultural town whose grain elevators process around 1.7 million bushels of wheat annually. The town boasts a small business district, school and airport, and is well known to hang gliders for its favorable summer weather. It is home to the Fire in the Sky high-power rocketry launches, and is close to Grand Coulee Dam and Lake Chelan. Mansfield Play Days is the main event of the year. It kicks off the second Saturday in June with a parade down Main Street. There are games, tournaments and a production by the Mansfield Theatrical Company. A museum houses rotating exhibits about Mansfield’s history, from an old schoolhouse display to vintage wedding dresses and photos from the town’s natives. Grimes and Jameson lakes, both popular fishing spots, are just south of town. The 1,050acre West Foster Creek Unit of the Wells Wildlife Area is northwest of town and offers shrub steppe habitat to a variety of wildlife. The area, on Bridgeport Hill Road, offers three parking spots. In the winter, the Mansfield area offers opportunities for cross-country skiers and snowmobilers. Settlers began arriving in Mansfield in 1909 with the introduction of the Great Northern Railroad. At the time, land was for sale and it was cheap. The largest amount of grain ever taken in at Mansfield was 3.2 million bushels in 1981. The farmers of Mansfield raised soft white wheat, barley and oats for many years; soft white wheat remains the area’s

No. 1 crop. In recent years, canola has been added to the mix. The original plan for the railroad in 1907 would take it from Wenatchee up Moses Coulee and into Waterville. In November 1908, engineer A.F. Whitcomb approached Great Northern Railroad about extending the tracks to a place near Mansfield. In 1909, the railroad neared completion. The Great Northern Railroad bought a quarter section of land and laid out streets and blocks. Mansfield, which at that time existed about one mile to the northeast, was moved. A telegraph line was soon installed. In November of 1909, the first train arrived. After that, two trains left per day, hauling passengers in the morning and freight in the afternoon. The population grew to nearly 2,500 and the town was incorporated in 1911. Three fires in 1914 took out much of the downtown. After that, the town council passed an ordinance requiring all buildings in the affected area to be made of fire-proof material, and prohibiting the installation of wooden sidewalks.

Pateros City celebrates river activities, birds — and pie Pateros celebrated its centennial in 2013, with a 100th birthday party and additional ceremonies and festivities during the annual Apple Pie Jamboree with its new sister city – Pateros, Philippines. This will be the jamboree’s 67th year. Scheduled for July 18-20, it features a parade, Jet Ski races, vendors, plenty of homemade pie and other activities. The annual Ray Stanley Memorial Bass Tournament is the same weekend. It’s a popular draw not only for anglers, but also for spectators hoping to catch a glimpse of the largest prize-winning fish. Anglers know Pateros — the Columbia and Methow rivers, which meet at the south edge of town, are home to varied species of fish. Both rivers are open for some

There are two public boat launches in Pateros, accessible in all water conditions, along with three public docks for people who’d rather stay on shore. There’s plenty of open water for canoeing and kayaking, skiing and personal watercraft, too. Nearby Alta Lake offers boating, swimming, a state park and an 18-hole golf course. Lake Pateros – the Columbia River backed up by Wells Dam – is the site of Jet Ski races in July and, in late August, the Pateros Hydro Classic. Private companies offer trail rides during the summer, and the Pateros area has plenty of public property with off-road potential for motorbikes and four-wheelers. Pateros is well known to bird watchers, and watchable wildlife abounds in the hills around town. The midSeptember Chelan Ridge Hawk Festival offers birding activities in the waterfront park, rescued raptors and the opportunity to view birds in the wild. Bargain hunters get their own weekends each year with all-town yard sales in June and late August. Camping enthusiasts will

Republic County’s lone incorporated city born in gold rush Republic, at the junction of state highways 20 and 21, is the only incorporated city in Ferry County. Originally called Eureka Gulch, the town was born during the 1890s gold rush. It is thought that the population may have reached 20,000 at the height of gold fever when the northern part of the Colville Indian Reservation was opened for prospecting. Republic is home to administrative offices for area Kinross Gold activities, with gold mining nearby in northern Okanogan County. Prospectors Days, the annual town celebration the second weekend in June, pays homage to that early heritage. Can-can girls, a staged Old West shootout, parade, rodeo and other activities are featured. Ranching, logging, cottage industry and tourism are among other businesses in the area. The breathtaking views of the Colville National Forest, which surrounds Republic, lend themselves to outdoor enthusiasts. Numerous nearby lakes also make the area attractive to visitors. Hunting, fishing, bird watching, bicycling, hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, boating, motorized recreational sports and fossil digging bring people to the area.

Republic is home to the Stonerose Interpretive Center and Eocene Fossil Site, located across the street from the city’s Patterson Park.

Riverside Riverside rolls along in into second hundred years Riverside celebrated its centennial of incorporation in 2014 and is rolling along on its second 100 years. The city has a population of fewer than 400 people, but it has a lot of history and is a quiet, pleasant place to visit. It includes a general store, gas station, city park, public fishing, a Western store, tattoo parlor, antique store, RV park, Grange Hall, pawn shop and other amenities. Some historic buildings still stand, such as the old schoolhouse. The 1912 school bell stands in a park. In the early 1900s, Riverside was booming, reaching a population of 350 and making neighboring Omak and Tonasket look small. Its success was largely due to its place as the head of riverboat navigation on Sunsets can be spectacular as the Okanogan River because seen from the m ountains above of waterfalls upstream.

Twisp Twisp is the place to be for arts and scenery Twisp is the place to be for those who love the arts and beautiful scenery. Its origins date from two short-lived gold booms in 1858 and 1880. Now, 900-plus permanent residents provide the commercial center of the Methow Valley population of more than 4,000. Tourists triple the population several times a year, especially in the summer, as folks flock to the beauty of the valley on the east slopes of the Cascade Mountain range. You can fly in at the Twisp Airport, just a mile out of the city. Many community events are planned each year and the airport is continually being upgraded with the support of local volunteers. Events are posted at www.twispair port.com. Once in the valley, you can enjoy time on some trails, such as the Twisp River Trail for bikers and or the handicapaccessible Blackpine Lake Trail. Or, if you hit Twisp in the summer, relax in the Wagner Memorial Pool in the Twisp Park. To get closer to nature, plan an adventure with Washington Outfitters and Guides Association on one of its horseback, sleigh, wagon, hiking, rafting or fishing trips throughout the year. Trips are

Winthrop Old West-themed town holds many charms Whether you’re an historian, outdoor enthusiast or just enjoy getting close to nature, Winthrop holds many charms. The town is known for its American Old West design of all buildings in town. The design dates back to a 1972 decision and is upheld by town ordinance. The first white settlers arrived as trappers in the 1800s, some staying permanently after 1883 when dreams of gold mining brought more. Winthrop’s founders came at that time. In 1891, Guy Waring built the two oldest buildings, both of which still stand. One was his home, known as The Castle — now the Shafer Museum — and the other the original Duck Brand Saloon, now town hall. An 1893 fire took out the rest of the town. Winthrop’s board sidewalks lead visitors to gold panning activities, museums, parks, glass-blowing demonstrations, Old West photo studios, puttputt golf, the oldest legal saloon in Washington and more. Aside from the aesthetics of the town itself, Winthrop is picturesque in its proximity to the North Cascades, surrounded by forests and wilderness. Visitors can enjoy cross-country skiing, rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking, river rafting, horseback riding, hunting, fishing, golfing, sight-seeing,

and ice skating and snow-shoeing in winter. The area also has multiple lodges and resorts where all these activities and more can be found, including a little rest from adventures. For those who like to sleep in the great outdoors, Winthrop also has multiple campgrounds. Want a wilder ride?
