SPOKANE RIVER

 

Trailer Park Wave:  Good  at  3300-7000  cfs,  prime  from  4500-6000.

     Gets better as it gets bigger. Hole-like when north channel of

     dam is closed. Wave-like when north channel is open.

 

Corbin Park Wave:  17,500+ cfs

     Corbin Wave gets  bigger and  better  as  the  water  level  rises. It

     can be tough to get out onto, so be ready to work. Be very care-

     ful here as the whirlpools are wicked!

 

Dead Dog:  11,000 (tiny and shallow) - 25,000 cfs

     Dangerously sticky around 20,000. When it's at its dangerous

     levels, Corbin Park is in.

 

Zoo Wave:  2350 - 2700 cfs

     Best at higher levels. Hole on surfer's left, breaking wave in

     the middle, green wave on surfer's right. Take your pick and

     throw down!

 

Sullivan Hole:  2000 - 3500 cfs

     Best levels for hole are 2900 - 3000. Wave-like above 3100.

     Greens out at 3500. Can hit the rock below 2800.

 

Mini Climax:  Best range is 6400 - 6800 cfs, but surf-able from

     5700 - 7500.

 

Duplex:  6000 - 9000 cfs

     Top wave (far river right) is better at the lower range,

     bottom wave better at higher range.

 

Devil's Eyeball:  High water park and play does not get any

     better than this! Although it is large, it is really flushy, so

     watch the corners of the wave on the surge, as they tend to

     disappear. Not for the faint of heart, this feature comes in at

     35,000 cfs and gets better with more water. Be sure to bring

     a camera.

 

 

 

HANGMAN CREEK

     Flour Power:  4.4 - 4.7 ft.
