2016 Nisqually River Fishing Report:


Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife
600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501-1091


Closure of Nisqually River to recreational fishing

Action: Close Nisqually River to recreational angling.

Effective dates: Jan. 6, 2016

Species affected:  All species.

Location: Nisqually River (Pierce County) from the mouth to the military tank crossing bridge (located one mile upstream of mouth of Muck Creek).

Reasons for action: Based on spawner surveys and harvest information available to date, WDFW and the Nisqually Indian Tribe are concerned that the winter chum return to the Nisqually River is not as abundant as forecast and has the potential to fall short of our escapement goal. Given this information and the need to achieve our shared conservation goals, both WDFW and the Nisqually Tribe are closing their respective fisheries. 

Other information: Anglers should refer to the 2015/2016 Washington Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet for other ongoing fishing opportunities.

Information Contact: James Losee: (360) 902-2741, james.losee@dfw.wa.gov
