Went out to JBLM for chum had a good day with my boy. He tied up a a Bobber with a jig pink/black. He fished for an hour with no take downs and all of a sudden I hear fish. His heart was pumpin,I look down and see its a chrome hen. She took a few runs but didn't get in the main current and we got her in. Was good to see my boy do it on his own. Also there were tons of guys on the other side biting a hole who were doing good drifting corkies. Merry Christmas and god bless.

Fished the Nisqually for a few hours this evening. Tried my hand using spinners and after almost an hour of no luck I has a fish hit so hard it nearly ripped the rod out of my hands. After a few runs the fish came to hand and was released to go about its business. Shortly after I switched gear to drift fishing using a 3 ft leader and had way better luck hooking 5 and releasing 4. Oh the 5 that were landed 2 were in bad shape. I released all fish. There was a guy who after seeing me catch fish came over right next to me and proceeded to snag fish hooking them in the back, tail, and belly. It was pathetic and a poor example of sportsmanship. At least he released them all though kicking them back into the water from 4 feet away hardly counts. Besides that knucklehead the fishinges was good.

I guess DNR got the word of no salmon too. The river is closed to harvest of chinook due to low returns until further notice.

Off of Old Pacific Hwy there is a location that DoD card holders are allowed to fish from. It is on the stretch of river south of five just north of the Old Pac Hwy. I went there for my first time salmon fishing and there were bites, we hooked a few but all morning (5.57am-noon) and out of my group of people 2 fish were caught but one had to be let go because it was foul caught. Then out of the string of people fishing in that spot there were 3 that could be taken home. I hooked one and it got off.

The fish weren't jumping and my friend who has been fishing there for years says it was quite slow as you could not see fish jumping or breaking the water on their own.

Tried my luck for the first time at the bridge off Mason Rd. Pretty low bite rates as no one seemed to being catching anything from about 6:30am to 9:00am. Unfortunately, it yook me all of 10min to collect a bag full garbage within about 40ft of riverside. This is simply disgusting. We need to keep our rivers clean if we want to keep fishing. Please pack out your trash. Leave it cleaner than you found it for all our benefit.

Nothing except mosquitos and good conversation. Lots of people at the river at 6am and most were leaving by 8 with a new crowd showing up. I fished the mounts river bridge. A lot of people there, so maybe someone caught something up river from me but I saw nothing but corkies and yarn.

Well I keep hearing rumors that a chain link fence got thrown in the water down stream of Mounts bridge last weekend to try to make fishing difficult. Not sure if the rumor is true, but a lot of people have been talking about it and getting hung up right through there. It seems like you get hung up about every tenth cast. I think everyone I saw lost at least three rigs while I was there. I fished today at Mounts bridge and saw no fish and saw no one catch anything. I did see three sea lions come through and head up to the bridge and come back down. My buddy saw two just below the bridge around 6pm. I saw the 3 around 1pm. Not a lot coming through right now. Looks like next weekend or after a big rain things should heat up. I heard the indians got a grand total of two in nets at the check station the past three days. Lots of mosquitos around as well.

10 Aug Went out to the mouth near the green can. Nisqually Tribe had 3/4 mouth netted up. Seen one native checking nets with a silver alumnacraft and then took off up river after checking his catch. If they can net the delta before the river on our days, then net the river on their days then we won't see any fish in the river. I wonder how those endangered wild salmon survive those nets.

11 Aug I went down to the river this morning, to look, not fish and ran into a couple Fort Bragg MPs down there who said I needed to get my range card from range control or I will face a tresspassing ticket even if I am in the military. I went to get my pass today so I should be good now. He said they may start stationing MPs down there to keep the peace because it got a little rowdy last year. How things change in a few years?
