Ethan Crawford, Spokane River, Spokane Fly Fish Guiding

Ethan Crawford

Owner, Fly Fishing Instructor, and Guide

I have learned many things growing up fishing the Spokane River. Patience, resilience, and perseverance are just a few of those lessons. I believe in conservation and river relief. With the Spokane flowing through the heart of the city these are very important to me.


The reason I fly fish is because I fell in love with the process. Methodically casting to runs where I know trout lurk is my passion. And in my belief, passion drives action. And for me my action is guiding, while teaching proper river care and conservation.


 I love to spend hours at my desk tying flies, but even more so crawling over rocks on the river. Book a trip with me and I will show you my passion for the river and its inhabitants.

Rob Driscoll


It was at the age of four when Rob first became hooked on fly fishing after landing a Pacific Bonito with his father on the Long Beach Pier in California. Since then, Rob has fly fished and lead countless whitewater and fishing trips throughout western waters all while raising his six children.

After retiring from his performance management company, Rob decided to use his home on Ashley Lake, Montana as his base for guiding and hosting adventures (See Ashley Lake for further info) as well as his small farm in Spokane County, WA to outfit and guide.

When asked why he chose to live and fish in Spokane Rob responds, "If I had discovered the quality of life in Spokane, Eastern Washington, and the Palouse, I would have settled here after college."
