San Joaquin River - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1511 words)
The river flows west to the trough of the Central Valley, where it is joined by the Sierra's other great rivers and then at Mendota Pool flows north to the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and then San Francisco Bay.
Before meeting the Sacramento River, the San Joaquin River has two distributary rivers, the Old River and the Middle River, both of which once were the main channels of the river.
However, the diversion of water from the upper reaches of the San Joaquin River and its tributaries significantly reduced the number of Chinook Salmon native to the river.
