The Top 3 Places to Fish Near Spokane


Spokane’s unique setting, west of the Rocky Mountain foothills and on the Spokane River, makes it a city bursting with natural beauty and opportunities for outdoor recreation. Spend more time on and near the water this summer at these three must-visit fishing spots located just minutes from the city.

Amber Lake

Amber Lake can be found 12 miles southwest of the town of Cheney, and its a body of water that’s known for its abundance of cutthroat and rainbow trout. The scenic lake is popular in spring, summer and fall among fly fishing anglers, but you don’t have to be an avid fly fisherman to enjoy your time here. Amber Lake allows two-pole fishing but is regulated under selective gear rules, meaning anglers are welcome to use single point, barbless hook artificial lures.

Fish Lake

You can tell by the name that Fish Lake is a hotspot for reeling in some dinner. It’s one of the area’s most popular trout lakes. Rehabilitated in 2012, the lake is now fully stocked with catchable brook and rainbow trout. Travelers seeking a more peaceful fishing experience love that internal combustion engines are prohibited, making the lake a quiter haven for fishermen and paddlers.

Silver Lake

Silver Lake is located just a short distance from the town of Medical Lake, and it is one of the best places to fish for warm water species. However, the lake is a year-round fishing hotspot, even when the weather is cooler. Be prepared to catch largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill, perch, tiger muskies and other species that are less popular at some other Spokane fishing holes. The lake is a whopping 418 acres in size, which gives summer fishermen plenty of room to spread out and relax.
