Report: I live near the Columbia River in Colville Washington. We jet ski on the Columbia, it is also known as Lake Roosevelt (named after you know who). It costs $40 bucks a year for a jet ski/boat launch pass. The water during the summer months is almost 70 degrees! Perfect for cooling you off! There are literally hundreds of miles of boat free-people free places to ride. The River is several miles wide and plenty of campsite places. There are even some islands you can camp out on - they even have picnic tables on them! Most of the time the water is like glass. But on occasion the water will be chop mostly big and gentle waves. Perfect for getting big air! This summer there were a couple weeks of awsome waves. On occasion you will find a log or two that doubles as a jump. If you yearn for big open space and nobody bugging you about your ride this is the place to go! You can even ride through the border into Canada! Or rent a house-boat and tow your skis for that leisure weekend retreat!
