• Spokane River, Washington

  • Hatches

    Midges


  • The Fishing

    The Spokane is still on the high side of fishable. At the current levels, spots will be very limited and you should exercise caution if you will be wade fishing the river in the coming week. Latah Creek is still adding some off colored water into the lower river, so choose your location with that in mind. Stonefly nymphs, hot bead nymphs, and sculpin-type streamers will get the job done. Target soft inside bends or back eddys, basically anywhere the fish can find refuge from the high, fast flows. Work the likely looking runs thoroughly, odds are fish will be stacked up in the limited holding water. Remember the river closes March 15th for spawning!

    We have been guiding the Spokane River since 2010, if you are interested in getting on the water with us in 2024 please give us a call at 509-924-9998 or check out the guided trips page.

  • The Fishing

    A handful of reports coming in from the CDA river this last week. Flows are pretty level but definitely a bit on the higher side. Fish the lower end of this drainage below Prichard to find the best holding water and active fish. A stonefly nymph and worm combo under the bobber is pretty hard to beat this time of year. Stripping streamers will also be worthwhile. I wouldn't count on the dry fly fishing but it never hurts to have a selection of midges, BWO's and some March Browns.

  • The Fishing

    Haven't heard much from the St Joe this past week, but flows look good and there are always some fish to be found up there this time of year. Stay below Avery and focus on the classic winter-style water. Stonefly and worm combo nymph rigs, streamers fished slow and deep. Bring along some midges, BWO's and March Browns in case a hatch does come off.

  • The Fishing

    Amber, Medical, Coffeepot and Liberty Lake all opened this past Friday 3/1. All of these lakes are ice free and sounds like the fishing has been pretty decent for the early season. It's been a few years since these lakes haven't been at least partially frozen on opening day, so it'll be nice having some more opportunities to get out and do some fishing. Hog Canyon and Fourth of July lake are open through 3/31 and will remain good options. Jesse went out to Medical and Amber lake on opening day and reported good fishing. He did the best on a balanced leech with a blob fly on the dropper. He did mention the access gate to Medical had not been unlocked yet, so if you intend to launch a boat this may be an issue.

  • Steelhead Rivers

  • The Fishing

    With high and fluctuating flows on the steelhead rivers and the fact we are approaching mid-February I'll probably hang up the steelie reports for the season! It was a decent steelhead season despite the low numbers. Catch rates were pretty consistent on our guided trips, though the average size fish was on the smaller side. I would also say the rates of fish that ate a swung fly was a considerably higher than last year for whatever reason, last year there was very few fish swung.

    If you want to join us for a trip next season (late September - October) give us a call. We have limited dates.
