2016 Fall Spokane River Video Report

Streamer Fishing on the Spokane River.

From soft hackles to streamers...

Fall fly fishing on the Spokane River has been going pretty strong with a variety of tactics on the menu. Lately we have really enjoyed getting out with the trout speys and swinging soft hackles or streamers, sometimes both at the same time. The dry fly fishing has been really fun too in the glassy pools with fish feeding actively on bwo's and cadddis.

As we move closer to winter, the slower currents have been key places to find fish. While temps are cooler they are still pretty warm for this time of the year keeping fish active. We have had pretty regular hatches of bwo's, fall caddis, October caddis, and midges. Bwo's and fall caddis have been the strongest hatches as of late from about noon - 4pm.

The river levels on the Spokane are up a little, but there are still plenty of options and places to fish, just don't expect your July levels. Conditions overall are great whether in a boat, or on foot.
