Spokane Rowing Club Relocates

Spokane River Rowing Association opens this season on Silver Lake near Medical Lake in eastern Spokane County. We look forward to having more days on the water at the lake location and it’s a great place to launch our boats. On the river, the rowing season usually started in June as the river is quite swift with spring runoff. Since Felts Field would not consider issuing a lease to SRRA to remain at the site near Upriver Dam, we were fortunate to get a permit from the WA Department of Fish and Wildlife to launch at Silver Lake. With our new site, we look forward to getting on the water in May and rowing until November. We will offer Learn-to-Row courses each month and novice (completed Learn-to-Row course) and experienced rowing sessions at least 5 days/week.

New recruits who have been practicing on rowing machines this winter are eager to get on the water. Experienced rowers are also looking forward to the 3500 meter long lake. We’ve worked hard to establish a safe site at Silver Lake which also offers plenty of parking. Rowing is a growing sport in the Northwest. We are an inclusive and welcoming club and are excited to share it with people. If you are interested in finding out more contact srra@spokanerowing.org.
