Fly Fishing

You thought fly fishing was only a summer thing? Think again: Grab your rods and warm coats and join us on the Spokane River for a little after class fly fishing! All skill levels are more than welcome and if you could bring your own fly rod, flies, etc., that would be great but if not we can easily set you up with the necessary gear. We will be meeting in the office at 2:10pm, and will be back on campus by 5:30pm.
