Fintastic film festival at the Bing


Over 425 people turned out for the 2nd Annual Spokane River Benefit at the International Fly Fishing Film Festival hosted by Silver Bow Fly Shop. Proceeds from the festival go to the Spokane River Forum to improve river access and support our native fishery. With great raffle and auction items from manufacturers like Winston Rods, Lamson Reels, Patagonia, Simms, Rising, and Fishpond, the festival was a big success. Click here to see pics of event.


Said Bill Abrahamse, the Spokane Chapter Trout Unlimited (TU) President who coordinated the raffle and auction, "We raised just a bit over $10,000. As promised, that will enable the Spokane River Forum to complete fundraising to build access and restore the riparian area at Islands Trailhead. Anything extra will go toward other access projects the Forum is working on with us, Spokane Riverkeeper and others." Read More

Big thanks to our festival sponsors!!

VPI Home Solutions, AHBL and Valbridge Property Advisors rock!! These Spokane businesses stepped up for the river and film festival. Said Jeanna Hofmeister, President of the Spokane River Forum Board and Chief Marketing Officer for Visit Spokane, "They did it because they want to, not because they had to. That's what makes them and this community great."
