The Baker River flows out of Lake Shannon and Baker Lake through the town of Concrete, WA. It flows into the Skagit river right at Concrete and is only open for limited areas and seasons. It gets a large run of Sockeye Salmon which stack up behind the fish barrier. The river is closed to fishing upstream of the Hwy 20 bridge to protect the salmon.
