I don't know where everyone else is located, but I live in Selah, WA and there are a lot of lakes in the area, none that is really very close.

There is one spot near here that has a two-mile stretch of slow to moderate current on the Yakima River that is a couple of minutes away and easily accessible.

The Roza Recreation area is ideal for putting the boat in without driving an hour to get to a lake. If you are breaking in a new engine or just don't have all day to go squirt some water around, this is a pretty good option.
