California Rivers Map:
This map shows the major streams and rivers of California and some of the larger lakes. Most of California is in the Pacific Ocean watershed. Major streams that drain to the Pacific include the San Joaquin, Salinas, Russian, Eel and Trinity Rivers. Small parts of eastern California are in the Great Basin, an area of the United States that does not drain into any ocean but instead drainage flows into local basin such as Lake Tahoe or Mono Lake. Most of these lakes and streams can be clearly seen on the California Satellite Image. We also have a page about California water resources.
