Private Crab Creek - 5 Miles of Exclusivity!

One of Eastern Washington's "secret" desert creeks, Crab Creek boast some truly amazing fly fishing very close to the state's second largest city. Crab Creek is approximately 60 minutes West of Spokane and is an easy drive for anyone traveling to the area or nearby Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Home to some extremely healthy Redband Rainbows and an occasional Brown Trout, this small spring fed stream will keep anglers on their toes all day long. It is not uncommon to land fish well over 20" here!

We primarily fish Crab Creek mid-February through late June. While subsurface fishing is the best with nymphs and streamers we do occasionally get some dry fishing with Caddis, Mayflies, and Midges. Because the stream is so fragile and we want to maintain the quality of this fishery we limit Crab to 4 anglers per day with 2 guides.

Crab Creek is a wild trout fishery where stealth and well placed casts can pay off. New fly fishers may find Crab Creek to be a challenging destination , we may recommend that you book a trip with us on one of our other fisheries like the Spokane River, North Fork Coeur d'Alene or St. Joe. If you are up for the challenge, then Crab Creek is a place for you.

Located on a 4,000 plus acre working cattle ranch the creek meanders through Eastern Washington's arid scab-rock country and is home to numerous species of wildflowers and animals. So while you may get focused on the fishing it pays to look up occasionally at your private sanctuary that you have all to yourself!
