The North Fork Skokomish Confluence is where the north fork Skokomish River drops to the floodplain and joins the south fork. Sediment transport dynamics are complex, and sedimentparticles of clay, silt, sand, gravel, or cobble, transported by water, are called sediment. aggredation has resulted in fish passage barriers during low flow, as the river flows below the surface. A wide range of actions are underway to manage the confluence floodplain for the benefit of fisheries.

Notes
