The Stilly, the Sauk and the Suiattle Rivers
The North Fork Stillaguamish, or "The Stilly" as it's known locally, contains miles of meandering water to explore. The mountain views and occasional glimpses of wildlife make this river a year-round favorite for photographers, birders, and those wanting to enjoy being outside.
The Sauk and Suiattle Rivers, part of the Skagit Wild and Scenic river system offer some of the most remote stretches of water in the state. During late fall and winter bald eagles can be seen perched in trees or eating fish on the gravel bars by the river.
