Spokane River opens at Post Falls

Spokane River users are now permitted to use the stretch between the Spokane Street Bridge and Post Falls Dam. Sinking water levels allowed for the spill gates at the Post Falls Dam to close, and the section of river to open.

The Q’emlin Park boat launch near Post Falls reopened today, according to the City of Post Falls officials. Avista officials said the site should be open through Labor Day, depending on weather conditions.
