Grand Coulee, WA

I'm headed to Coulee next week to check out the area and for a job interview. Is there any good boating in the area? Want to make sure I'm not going to have to drive for hours to find some decent water.

wenatchee is a couple of hours but I believe good boating in the canyon

No whee, don't do it! Or get a new hobby. I would sooner shot myself the live out there. Ok, if youre a lake boater your ok. But everything is atleast a couple hours and mostly seasonal.

Wenatchee has some good stuff and some crazy ass runs too. But really nothing special for the average guy. The tiaton (spelled it wrong) has a nice fall run. Nothing real close by. Spokane??? I wouldn't move there for the boating or senery for that matter.

Spokane has a lot of play which is in a majority of the season, but the closest creeking to us is Sandpoint. There are some rad runs up there though. Wenatchee is always a good time, lots of play, big runoff, and beautiful.

I grew up 1/2 hour away from there. It's a wonderful place. Check out the Wenatchee, Methow, the Entiat, Chewach. Not very far is the Grande Ronde in Oregon and of course many rivers on the west side. There's a link on here somewhere showing when they let water out of Lake Chelan for rafting/kayaking the Chelan gorge - it was awesome. Spokane area does have a lot too.
