Newman Lake
Photo of Newman LakeTwelve miles northeast of Spokane about a mile from the Idaho border, this year-round open season spot has something for everybody: largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, perch, catfish, plus an occasional eastern brook trout. In addition, Newman has been stocked with tiger muskies and provides an excellent trophy fishery for this elusive fish.
