Sprague Lake - May 25th, 2017
  • Recorded:
  • Mostly cloudy
  • 62 ° F 
  • Fishing: Great
Water is still high, as nearly every other body of water in the region! Cautious boating is recommended for those not well acquainted with the lake. Bass spawn continues to pick up, but Sprague is mostly known for yielding hog rainbows! Troll / navigate along the thermoclines (get as deep as possible) and use full-sinking or sink-tip lines with your black, purple, olive or brown streamer of choice. Alternatively, you can tie on a huge chironomid or other lake fly (damsels, dragons) and cast towards the bank (let sink, give action, let sink again...).  
 
Amber Lake - May 25th, 2017
  • Recorded:
  • Mostly cloudy
  • 62 ° F 
  • Fishing: Good
Call the shop for details on fishing tactics and the best patterns (509) 323-0500. Can't go wrong with a bionic worm under an indicator (even from the boat launch area...).
 
Columbia River - May 25th, 2017
  • Recorded:
  • Mostly cloudy
  • 69 ° F 
  • Fishing: Great
Check flows before heading out to see how much water is coming over the dam into Rufus Woods reservoir. This fishery is best fished from a boat (RIO Deep 7 full-sinking line), but Nespelem Creek offers some decent shore fishing (especially if you want to catch some 20+lb carp in the summer)... Otherwise, launch from Seton's Grove. Be sure to get your Colville Tribal Permit before you go if you plan to shore fish or launch from a tribal boat launch (call the shop for more info @ (509) 323-0500).
 
Spokane River - May 25th, 2017
  • Recorded:
  • Mostly sunny
  • 61 ° F 
  • Fishing: Poor
High water and closed for fishing (flows are coming down and limited bank fishing will be available for about the first half of June as flows continue to drop). Call the shop or stop by for information to get you ready for the upcoming trout season! Opens June 1.
 
Crab Creek - May 22nd, 2017
  • Recorded:
  • Mostly sunny
  • 77 ° F 
  • Fishing: Good
Streamside grass is still pretty low and water flows much higher than normal (if you choose to cross the creek, do so with caution), but there are some nice trout to be had. Visibility is improving, expect full visibility in next 1-2 weeks. Dress and pack for sun (polarized glasses, hat, plenty of water) and wind, be prepared to hike a couple miles if you want to get to unpressured areas, watch your step and check for ticks when you're back at the truck.
