USGS map of the Yuba River watershed


The Yuba River is an important river in Californiamarker and a major tributary of the Feather River, which is a tributary of the Sacramento River. The river begins as three separate forks, the north, south and middle, in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The north fork begins at Yuba Pass and flows into the New Bullards Bar Reservoirmarker, which is formed by New Bullards Bar Dammarker. The middle fork begins at Jackson Meadows Reservoir, which is formed by Jackson Meadows Dam, and joins the north fork just downstream of the New Bullards Bar Dammarker. A tunnel is used to divert water from the middle fork to New Bullards Bar Reservoir. The south fork begins at Lake Spaulding, which is formed by Spaulding Dam, and joins the other forks at Englebright Reservoir, which is formed by Englebright Dammarker. The Yuba River meets the Feather River near Yuba Citymarker.

The Yuba was probably named by early Spanish or Mexican scouting expeditions in the region who found wild grapes growing along the banks of the river, and dubbed it using a variant spelling of the Spanish word uva (grape).
