White-Salmon is a small community located in Klickitat County in south-central Washington. As of the 2000 census, the population was 2,193 residents. White Salmon, situated near the mouth of the White Salmon River, sits high on a bluff overlooking the Columbia River. It is directly north of Mount Hood and the Hood River in Oregon, and was a port stop for Columbia River traffic. The town's first settlers were the Erastus S. Joslyn family who came to the area in 1852. White Salmon is located in Klickitat Countys fruit-growing region. Klickitat County is said to be on "the wild and sunny side of the Columbia River Gorge." The region offers breathtaking scenery, clean air and a moderate climate and lots of recreational opportunities. The Klickitat River is a tributary of the Columbia River and is about 75 miles long. It drains a rugged plateau area on the eastern side of the Cascade Range. In 1986, ten miles of the river were designated Wild and Scenic. Descending from the snow fields of Mt. Adams and the Goat Rocks Wilderness, the Klickitat River passes through some of the most remote wilderness canyons in the Pacific Northwest, therefore is a very popular place for whitewater rafting. Other sports in the White Salmon area include kayaking, hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, fishing skiing and other winter sports and camping.

White Salmon Weather & Climate

Northwest Oregon, near Portland, enjoys a mild climate with only occasional severe weather elements such as tornadoes, hailstorms, or high winds. The single most important factor in the climate is the Pacific Ocean. Due to the normal movement of air masses from west to east, most of the systems moving across Oregon have been modified extensively after traveling over the Pacific Ocean. As a result, winter temperatures and summer maximum temperatures are greatly moderated. However, the northwestern corner of the state does receive abundant rainfall. Near the coast, the average annual snowfall is only one to three inches, with many years in which there is no measurable amount at all. Hailstorms occur each year, but are generally light and cover small areas. The north coastal area has the least amount of sunshine each year, while the southeast corner of the state has the most.
