The Little Spokane River is a tributary of the Spokane River, approximately 35 mi (56 km) long, in eastern Washington in the United States. It drains a rural area of forested foothills and a farming valley north of the city of Spokane along the Idaho-Washington border.

It rises in southern Pend Oreille County, south of Newport near the Idaho state line. It flows SSW past Milan and Colbert. It joins the Spokane River from the east approximately 10 mi (16 km) northwest of Spokane.

The river has several popular hiking trails along it, and is a popular destination for canoeing and kayaking.
