Lake Coeur d'Alene is the source of this powerful and altitude descending river joining the Columbia River at the base of its journey. The Spokane River traverses two States, four counties and seven dams. This river boasts a native population of rainbow trout, northern pikeminnow, and Bridgelip Suckers, as well as several non-native species including brown trout. Joe and his crew love to guide this river because it is a natural extension of the Coeur d'Alene.
"The Spokane is a free stone, absolutely beautiful river. It provides great hatches for dominant dry fly fishing and our aquatic invertebrates are bigger. The Westslope Cutthroat is a Native fish with a strain that is 10,000 years old: survived wars and human influences. Whether walk-wade fishing or floating in our McKenzie River Style boats its guaranteed to show you a good time."
