The Tucannon River is a river in southeastern Washington state that flows from headwaters in the Blue Mountains to a confluence with the Snake River 4 miles (6 km) upstream from Lyons Ferry Park and the mouth of the Palouse River. The Tucannon itself drains 318 square miles (820 km2) and is 62.3 miles (100.3 km) long. Tributary Pataha creek enters the Tucannon about 11 miles (18 km) above the Tucannon's confluence with the Snake River, and drains a watershed of an additional 185 square miles (480 km2).All tributaries of the Tucannon River are closed to fishing, and sections of the Tucannon River are also closed to protect four federally listed Threatened and Endangered fish species: spring/summer and fall chinook salmon as well as bull trout and steelhead. The areas which are closed protect the main spawning grounds.
