A

s the snow melts away from the mountains, spring fever strikes Okanogan Country and the outdoor recreational season begins. With water rushing in rivers and streams, and opening up on area lakes, eager anglers rush for their favorite poles and fishing holes to catch the big one. Starting from Day One of the fishing opener April 28, 2012, until the season ends, anglers show their prowess in derbies and other competitions. Conconully hosts a derby each year, along with specially tagged fish for a big prize (beside the prize of a tasty meal of fresh fish). Later in the season, salmon derbies are the delight. Not into fishing? Spring is also a great time to strike out on an Okanogan Country hiking, biking or horseback riding trail. Want something faster? The countryside is marked by ATV trails, as well. Some cities – such as Conconully and Okanogan – keep their streets open to ATV use, in case you need to grab a snack or gas at a friendly neighborhood store before your trek. The newest trail is the Similkameen Trail, along the Similkameen River west of Oroville. Hikers maneuver through a working vineyard, over an old railroad bridge and finally land with a view of the Similkameen Falls at historic Enloe Dam. In case you want to make that hike a longer one, the backcountry is full of camping areas for those who want to rough it.

Get in that spring golf came at one of several golf courses throughout the area. Grab a camera and hear the call of the wild and the birds. Okanogan Country is full of feathered friends of multiple varieties. From waterfowl to raptors, birds flock to this country.

T

he summer sun strikes a chord with communities throughout Okanogan Country. As the heat rises, so does the number of festivals and fun times throughout the area. During the summer, nearly every city and town sets aside a day or weekend to celebrate its heritage and have a good time. Over almost any weekend, a visitor can find themself in the middle of a street dance, parade, fireworks display, historical reenactment, pie-eating contest or other big event. Looking for the sporting festivals? Well, we have those, too. From 3-on-3 basketball tournaments to fishing competitions to golf tournaments and more, visitors and locals can feed their competitive spirit. For some action-packed excitement on the water, check out hydroplane racing in Pateros or Oroville. Or how about Jet Ski riding, racing and freestyle on the Columbia River? As we celebrate our communities, we also like to celebrate our country. Celebrate the Fourth of July Okanoganstyle with one of many festivals on the Fourth or the following weekend.

celebration. And, folks, we know how to rodeo in Okanogan Country. Whether it’s the Omak Stampede, Methow Valley Rodeo, Chesaw Rodeo, Tonasket Founders Day Rodeo or any number of bucking events, you can get your fill of chills and spills throughout the season. The possibilities for entertainment are endless in every corner of The Okanogan.

utumn means harvest in Okanogan Country, and that brings out the best of us and our crops to share. Did you know this is wine country? We have some national awardwinners in this area, with grapes grown in our soil. Wine festivals and tastings abound, especially in the flowing presses in the Oroville area. Omak also boasts its own winery and you can find a few tasting rooms in the Methow Valley as well. Originally founded in part by orchards, that history continues as apples, pears, peaches – we could go on and on – and more come off the trees and onto fruit stand shelves, juicy and fresh. Check out farmers’ markets in multiple communities to get the best and most flavorful goods grown right here. And as is traditional in close communities, we all like to share our crops, handmade goods, livestock and more during county fairs.

Autumn From 11 Ferry County hosts a fair over Labor Day weekend, with Okanogan County answering back with another fair the second weekend in September. Fair time means horse racing, rodeos, carnival rides, live music and much more, too. Fall also is a great time to catch the changing colors over scenic drives and overlooks around Okanogan Country. A drive up North Cascades Highway is worth the time before the snow closes the road for the winter.

Winter L

ike the snow? So do we! We don’t hibernate in Okanogan Country. We meet winter head on in sports and fun, even in the chilliest weather. Those trails that worked for ATVs also work for snowmobiles, and local clubs keep the paths groomed and used for those wanting to feel that crisp, fresh air. We also have our own ski areas. The Loup Loup Ski Bowl offers skiers and snowboarders great slopes, great powder and great mountain views. Sitzmark Ski Hill at Havillah, outside Tonasket, has its own slopes, with classes and good times for anyone wanting to take on the snow.

Sledders head across a field looking for a good hill.

Winter From 14 Cross country skiing is a great way to go in this area, with trails set aside for that purpose. Molson hosts an ice fishing festival every year on Sidley and Molson lakes, so get out your gear and stomp across the ice. If you find the big one, you can win a great prize. Interested in seeing some furry friends? Visit

Conconully for the Snow Dog Super Mush every January and cheer on your team. Or share some laughs, cheers and jeers at the annual Outhouse Races on Conconully’s Main Street. And in case you’re here for the holidays, we get lit for Christmas with lighting ceremonies in several communities. You can also catch the annual Twilight Parade in Omak or one of many bazaars.

Get a taste of the local

Arts

The arts come alive in Okanogan Country. Looking for artwork? Twisp and Winthrop boast galleries galore, with local artists’ featured paintings, photography, sculptures and more. Take in larger artwork in places like TwispWorks, a campus partly devoted to letting our art side out. Walk past the murals throughout Okanogan, and see large reproductions of historic Frank Matsura photographs on billboards and walls. Check out the wooden carvings along Bridgeport’s Foster Creek Road, made out of the stumps of trees otherwise cut down. Looking for a production? The Methow Valley has its theaters and productions throughout the year, from musicals to comedies and more. The Okanogan Valley Orchestra and Chorus keeps music roaring in the country with concerts in season and its annual spring musical.

Take a tour of area

History With several cities marking more than 100 years in the area, history is one of the many things to be explored in Okanogan Country. The Okanogan County Historical Society operates the Okanogan, Molson and Conconully museums, and Shafer Museum in Winthrop. Check out information about miners, orchardists, loggers and other activities which founded the area. The Okanogan museum also features the Fire Hall Museum, which is a reproduction of the original building, complete with an old fire engine parked inside, and the Wilson Research Center. The Borderlands Historical Society keeps its heritage alive with artifacts and records for Oroville, Molson, Chesaw and Tonasket. Old Oroville Depot features a variety of special exhibits throughout the year, along with its regular exhibits, such as an old train car. With Grand Coulee Dam in sight, see how the massive structure was built at the Colville Tribal Museum and gift shop in Coulee Dam. The dam visitor center also offers historical information.

From

Okanogan

to

If you’re crossing through Okanogan Country into Canada (or vice versa), there are a few things you should know. U.S. and Canadian citizens aged 16 or older need to present a valid, acceptable travel document, such as a passport, U.S. passport card, traveler card, permanent resident card or enhanced driver’s license when entering by land or water. Those under 16 may present a birth certificate or

Okanagan alternate proof of citizenship. Know the importing prohibited items. You can check out a list of items on the U.S. or Canadian Border Patrol websites. Be ready to declare all items with you in the vehicle to save time. Border wait times can be monitored online. Travelers should build extra time into their trip for the border crossing in case of delays.

International travelers should expect an inspection, even during busy holidays, when entering the U.S. The Oroville-Osoyoos border facility is the area’s only 24-hour crossing. Crossings with limited hours are located at Nighthawk (9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily), Ferry-Midway (9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily), Danville-Grand Forks (8 a.m. to midnight daily) and Laurier-Cascade (8 a.m. to midnight daily). More information on border crossing is available online at www.customs.gov or www.travel.state.gov.
