The Russians called it the Slavyanka River, meaning "Slav River".
Santa Rosa's Laguna Wastewater Treatment Plant treats sewage from several communities to tertiary standards and returns some of it to the river by way of the Laguna de Santa Rosa.
It is very safe at that time for swimming and boating, with a gentle current. Holway wrote of the Russian River in his 1917 paper "The Russian River: A Characteristic Stream of the California Coast Ranges".
The river is dangerous in the winter, with swift current and muddy water. Originally, the Russian River was one of several rivers draining westward from the Mayacamas Mountains through the Mendocino Plateau to the sea, a region lifted up by tectonic forces. Being at a lower elevation, the Russian River began cutting north into the drainage area of the Navarro River.
The Navarro River drained from the Cobb Mountain area, while the Russian River drained from the Mt. Eroding up a fault line in Alexander Valley, the Russian River intersected the Navarro River just north of Cloverdale.
This resulted in the stream capture of Big Sulphur Creek (formerly the upper Navarro River) and the north fork of the Navarro River, going north to Hopland and to Ukiah.
Recent genetic studies on steelhead collected at 20 different sites both above and below passage barriers in the watershed found that despite the fact that 30 million hatchery trout were stocked in the river from 1911 to 1925, the steelhead remain of native and not hatchery stock.
East of Healdsburg, Maacama Creek joins the Russian River. Austin Creek enters from the north before the River passes through Duncans Mills.
The Russian River is the largest river in the Central California Coast Steelhead trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) Distinct population segment.
Natural waterfalls and the two major dams, Warm Springs (built in 1982) and Coyote (built in 1959), have isolated anadromous steelhead from its non-oceangoing rainbow trout form above the impassable barriers.
After it makes a series of sweeping bends, the Healdsburg Memorial Bridge carries Old Redwood Highway over the river just upstream of U. State Route 1 crosses over the river before it flows into the Pacific Ocean between Jenner and Goat Rock Beach.
The Russian River estuary is recognized for protection by the California Bays and Estuaries Policy.
Through effective use of Lake Mendocino and Lake Sonoma flood capacity the river has exceeded flood stage at Guerneville less frequently in the 21st century, Historically it is interesting as one of two Northern California coastal rivers mentioned in the early nineteenth century by Russian explorer K. Khlebnikov as hosting sturgeon, presumably White sturgeon (Acipenser transmontanus), along with the Pajaro River. Kuskov had sent two baidarkas to the Slavianka River to catch sturgeon, and they returned today with ten fish..largest one exceeding two arshins (4.67 feet) long".
