"Drano Lake, Washington, and the Little White Salmon River"
Drano Lake:    Drano Lake, located in Skamania County, is created by backwater from the impoundment of the Columbia River from the Bonneville Dam. The lake enters the Bonneville Reservoir at Columbia River Mile (RM) 162. The Little White Salmon River drains into Drano Lake and slack water from the lake extends some distance up the Little White Salmon River. The lake is a popular fishing spot and hosts a boat ramp. It can be reached from Washington State Highway 14.
