The Plymouth, WA area is south of the Tri-Cities and just a few miles downstream from McNary dam. The access and sailing is typical of most Gorge sites with rugged shorelines and fast high-wind action. Despite the good sailing, Plymouth is one of the Gorge sites that does not experience crowded sailing.

Plymouth offers high-wind sailing year round. It lights up any time a larger weather system crosses the Columbia basin and moves eastward into Idaho.

The water conditions are similar to The Wall/Rufus area since the current is always moderately swift. The swell is fairly consistent at five to six feet, tight, and steep. Swell orientation is consistent for wind direction ranging from southwest to west. This results in effortless port ramps when the wind direction is southwesterly.

There are several points to access sailing in the Pymouth, WA area but the site most commonly used is located near the entrance to the Umatilla National Wildlife Refuge, Paterson Unit. From Highway 14, turn south on Christy Road towards the river. A sign just east of the railroad crossing on Christy Road indicates the entrance to the Wildlife Refuge. Drive 300 meters west on the access road. A trail thirty meters long provides access to the water.

The sensor at Plymouth is located on a 30 ft pole just west of the main launch area. Located fairly close to the water's edge, it has shown to accurately reflect on-water wind speeds during a typical Gorge westerly.
