Hood River Oregon River Running Guide

Weather for Hood River Oregon Forecast

Hood River sits along side the Columbia River some 60 miles east of Portland on Interstate Highway 84 and is the wind surfing capital of the world.  Previously known for growing luscious apples, pears, cherries, peaches and other fruits, and for the view of the majestic snowcapped peak of Mt. Hood, Hood River has become the destination of choice for wind surfers from around the world. The winds from the Columbia River Gorge create ideal conditions for riding the waves.

Long renowned for its magnificent setting in the Columbia River Gorge and its scenic drives through the picturesque fruit orchards of the Hood River Valley, this town of 6,230 has become the northwest's most popular location for windsurfing.

The windsurfing community contributes millions of dollars to the local economy and has helped spawn the growth of other destination-type activities including biking, hiking, fishing, golf, wine tasting and farm and garden tours.

Hood River also boasts several microbreweries and vineyards. Hood River County is now responsible for the leading production of Anjou Pears in the world. Fruits and timber products are still the major sources of revenue, although industrial opportunities are growing, and the future years will bring even more new development.
