You can not wade on the Little Spokane it is illegal. If you are in a pontoon boat you cannot put your feet in the water. The only legal way to access the river is either on dry land or in an enclosed canoe from a launch near the fish hatchery. Most of the river runs through private land so access is difficult.Where is a good place to fish on the little Spokane?
I used "control F" function to search WDFW game regulations and found only one listing for the Little Spokane and there isn't anything about "no wading". Using the same search function for Rocky Ford Creek, it specifically says "no wading". Not begin familiar with this stream or its location, would other regulations come into play (is any part of it in Idaho, I don't know)? All that comes to mind is "hatchery" and water quality if folks were wading.Where can I get a written copy of that law that says no wading? Lots of guys wade while others say it's illegal
It is posted on signs at the put-in and take-out (St George, Painted Rocks) that you must be in a closed bottom boat and fishing while wading (both in the stream and streamside I believe, but it's been a while since I've read it) is not allowed. If I think about it I'll try and run down tomorrow and see if the gates open and I'll take a picture of the sign.Krusty, I agree on the difficulty of wading but wasn't aware of any state park regs.
Do you know where a person might find that info?
