Spokane Canoe & Kayak Club paddlers paddle into the Calispell Creek area from the Pend Oreille River near Cusick, Wash. Calispell Creek is blocked from flowing into the Pend Oreille River by a railroad dike that keeps the Pend Oreille from flooding cropland during high water. Because of the dike, two powerful engines pump water from Calispell Creek over the dike so it can flow into the Pend Oreille.
