Comments & ID Thoughts

I have no clue on what this spider is. I was wondering what is that white ball under the spider.

Thank you

Hi, this looks more wolf spider, and typical how she is holding her egg sac.
The only fishing spider out west is Dolomedes triton, 6 spotted fishing spider and much a semi aquaiic sort.
