Trout TV to feature Project Healing Waters on Crab Creek

FLY FISHING – Spokane anglers treating disabled veterans with fly fishing therapy will be featured on Trout TV on Sunday, March 30 at 4 p.m. on KAYU Fox 28.

Trout TV host Hilary Hutcheson teams with Crab Creek fishing guide G.L. Britton and volunteers from Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing to help vets catch fish and cast away their anxieties from injuries sustained in Vietnam and Iraq.

Project Healing Waters has 140 chapters in 50 states where fly-fishing volunteers reach out to veterans, said Norm Scott, organizer of the chapter serving the Inland Northwest.

And the vets weren't disappointed with the fishing on Crab Creek last spring.

Filming of the show was featured in The Spokesman-Review Outdoors section on May 12, 2013.

See a photo gallery of the filming.

Fishing’s fair, but angler catches limit of ticks

FISHING — Spring-like conditions are advancing in leaps and bounds, as indicated by the experience of a friend who went fly fishing on Crab Creek in Lincoln County twice in the past 10 days.

On the first trip he hit a hatch, caught and released quite a few fish and encountered no ticks.

Buoyed by that experience, he returned to the creek on Monday.

“I caught four fish, and plucked off 25 ticks,” he said.  “The tick season has arrived. I'll be fishing elsewhere.”
