Miami River Oregon
From Wikipedia, the Free Encyclopedia
The Miami River is a short coastal river, approximately 12 miles (19 km) long, on the coast of northwest Oregon in the United States. It drains a mountainous timber-producing region of the Northern Oregon Coast Range west of Portland into Pacific Ocean.
It rises in northern Tillamook County in the Tillamook State Forest and flows southwest, entering the north end of Tillamook Bay approximately 2 miles (3 km) east of Garibaldi. It is one of five rivers, along with the Kilchis, Wilson, Tillamook River and Trask rivers, that flow into Tillamook Bay. The river descends swiftly from around 1000 ft. (300 m) over its short course near the coast. It does not pass through any communities before reaching the coast. Like the other rivers in the Tillamook watershed, it is known for its prolific salmon runs.
