    Just because info wasn't spewed on the main page doesn't mean she wasn't given some. :)

    There is nothing secret around Spokane, is there.

    I'm not sure when this was posted, I'm probably late. But a good place to wet a line nearby would be the North Fork of the Coeur D Alene. It is around a 2 hour drive from Spokane and a day license is only about $12. Paved road all the way with westslope cutthroats running alongside. Not a bad way to spend a day.

    Based on the "old and feeble" bit, be careful wading the Spokane. Basalt is slick as snot, granite is grippy. Water deeper than knee to mid thigh has a lot of force and might send you swimming. I'd avoid stretches within a mile or so of downtown if you'd be uncomfortable seeing transients. I haven't fished it yet this year, but have several friends who have been catching plenty of nice healthy fish. The parts that look fishy, are :)

    I was across the bridges downtown yesterday and wouldn't be tempted to try to get down to it. Is upstream less of a canyon?
