  2. 2. Did this Poll work for you?


The water in the Spokane River is finally at a fishable level after a very wet spring/summer, so I decided to head out and give it a go after work last night. When I arrived a family of Merriam Turkeys and caddis fluttering around my truck greeted me. Not a bad way to start...

Having never fished or seen this stretch of river before I wasn't sure what to expect. When I got to the bank I felt like kissing the ground because it looked like prime water, the best part is its 15 minutes from my house and 5 minutes from where I work! The river has a solid population of redband rainbows, whitefish, brown trout and squawfish. I didn't see any fish rising when I got to the first run so I put on a caddis emerger and soft-hackle PT under an indicator. It wasn't long until my bobber was darting under the water. My first Spokane River fish was a solid rainbow that put a good bend in my 4 weight. I caught a few more on nymphs and once the sun got lower in the sky the caddis really started to pop. X-caddis did the trick...
