Trout Derby reset

by Roosevelt levels

OUTFISH – The annual Two Rivers Spring Trout Derby at Lake Roosevelt has been postponed because of this year’s deep drawdown of Lake Roosevelt, said organizer Dan Kieffer.

The event, originally set for next weekend, April 26-27, has been rescheduled for May 17-18, which the reservoir’s water levels should be on the rise, he said.

Other derbies also have been scheduled by Two Rivers Resort, which is on the Spokane Indian Reservation at the confluence of the Spokane and Columbia Rivers near Fort Spokane:

  • June 7-8 – Walleye Derby.
  • June 14-15 – Bass Derby.
  • Aug. 23-24 – Fall Derby.

Info: (509) 215-0202 or 722-4029.
