Stillwater Trips

Eastern Washington is blessed with picturesque lakes that offer an adventurous experience for any fly fisher.

As you drive out of Spokane with the city and towns disappearing in the rearview mirror, a striking landscape of basalt cliffs and sagebrush begins to unveil itself before your eyes. Blended into this scenery are prized lakes, each offering you its own fly fishing experience. Floating atop one of these lakes, you will find it hard to beat an early morning as the surrounding hills are abuzz with wildlife and waterfowl, and before long you could find yourself hooked into one of the large resident trout.

Fly Fish Spokane offers multiple trip options for fly fishing Eastern Washington's lakes. Whether you are new to fly fishing or are an experienced angler, we can tailor the trip to fit your needs and expectations. For lake fishing, we typically fish from a boat but we can also provide instruction on how to fly fish effectively from the bank. Our trips are typically 1-2 anglers per guide and are offered in full or half-day options. During the trip, you will be fishing for rainbow, westslope cutthroat, and/or brown trout in a landscape of basalt cliffs, pines, sagebrush, and rolling hills.

The prime season for fly fishing Eastern Washington's lakes for trout is from ice-out (which is typically early March) until the end of May, and then again in the fall from September to November. There is also the added benefit of potentially being able to take home a trout at the end of the day to cook for dinner, and our guides can help with cleaning the trout and provide some of our favorite trout recipes.

 Please view the trip options below, and if you have any questions or would like to modify one the trips then please feel free to contact us so we can create the trip you have in mind.
