The Twisp River is a tributary of the Methow River, in the U.S. state of Washington. It is about 26 miles (42 km) long. The name of the river is derived from a local Indian word meaning "wasp" or "yellowjacket".
The Twisp River originates in the North Cascades portion of the Cascade Range. Flowing generally east, the Twisp River drains the mountains south of Washington Pass as well as the eastern slopes of Sawtooth Ridge, a major mountain range with some of Washington state's highest peaks (such as Star Peak and Mt Bigelow).
