The South Yuba River begins at Lake Spaulding and joins the North and Middle Yuba Rivers at Englebright Reservoir. Thirty-nine miles of the South Yuba River is designated Wild and Scenic, where the majority of the watershed is either logged or undisturbed hardwood and conifer forest. Like all three Upper Yuba Watershed rivers, the South Yuba has considerable hydraulic mining damage and residue. The watershed is monitored by the SYRCL.
