2017 Nisqually River Fishing Report: 


Nisqually River will not open to fishing for gamefish Dec. 1


Action: The Nisqually River will remain closed to all fishing and will not open Dec. 1 to fishing for gamefish as scheduled.

Effective dates: Dec. 1, 2017, until further notice.

Species affected:  All species.

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

Reason for action: Based on current run estimates, WDFW and tribal co-managers agree that winter chum salmon returns will fall short of conservation goals. Keeping the river closed to all fishing will increase the number of chum returning to spawn and help ensure future returns.

Other information: In order to achieve our shared conservation goals, the Nisqually Tribe is closing their fisheries on the Nisqually River as well.
