Hit the Nisqually River this morning. Fished for 1 1/2 hours without a bump, hit, strike, or twitch of the line. Beautiful day though sunny with a high temp of upper 40's. Taked to a few others and their luck was the same as mine. Did notice a lot of people start to show up as I was leaving. Maybe it was the wrong time. 3-4 hours after a high tide I'd thought would be money. Not so much.

Stopped at Mounts Road on the way home from Black Friday shopping at Cabelas. Heard reports of Chums.. Not a lot of people. Fished for 2 hours and cooked lunch. River a little high but great weather. No fish only a seal looking for the same. Talked to a friendly fisherman who said he expected chums to show up with high tides at around 2:00PM. I have fished and caught king and silvers there and there is usually some signs of fish no matter what tide there is in the morning. Are chums more picky about tides in the Nisqually?

finally getting around to adding some photos and catching up on some posts I've been procrastinating on. Nice day on the river. Lots of pinks rolling through. Here's one of the many fish caught for the day. About every 10-15 casts fish on!!! Caught some on plugs, jigs, bait, as well as some good ol dry flies....

Went camping with my Boy Scout patrol at river bend camp ground. The 5 of us started fishing at 6:00 and fished all day. At the start of the day around 6:45 I caught a 8lb hatch king hen. But it was a bit of luck since I managed to snag a line in the fishes mouth. Around 8:00 I tied a spoon on my friends line and decided to take a practice cast to make sure it would cast well. First "test" cast fish on 30 seconds later fish off. Second cast fish on 30 seconds later fish off. Third cast fish on 2 min later fish breaks the 30 lb line. Between 8:30 and 4:00 we went 2/4 on pinks but released one cause it was really beat up. Around 4:30 I had just finished tying a white marabou jig. First cast fish on, after three minutes of the fish sprinting up and down stream and a good look at the ~20 lb hach king she spits the hook. It was a sad way to end the day but it was nice to at least leave with one fish

Spent a couple of hours on the Nisqually River. I did catch a Pink of decent size. However the real good information is that some of those fishing around me were catching Chinooks.

Got the chance to go out on a friends luxury jet sled on the Nisqually to feed the kings. I had a couple different egg cures I wanted to try out. We started above the hatchery confluence and fished pinks with bobber and pink jig tipped with sand shrimp. Caught mostly bucks and hooked and kept only one pink hen. My friend hooked a monster pink buck, pushing close to 10 lbs. He also hooked a big native hen chinook 15-16lbs on the same jig tipped with sand shrimp and light humpy gear. Really fun to watch a guy fight a big king on light gear. After our fill of pink fishing we went down below the confluence and fished a slot and first cast I hooked into a nice big hen. I was thrilled that my new egg cure works. After that the fishing only got better. Bobber downs every other cast. My friend hooked a king and as I was reeling up to get out of his way a king takes my eggs. DOUBLE! We lose a few and get one more to the boat before we decide to head back because its starting to get dark. First time fishing the Nisqually and it was amazing fishing! Also excited that I can now fish with confidence with a good egg cure.

Hit the Nisqually around 9AM sat and watched a few people to see where they were snagging up at. Tied up and got my line wet about noon or so. 5-6 casts and it was fish on. fought it about 2-3 minutes. Landed it, and it was a small hatch king, maybe 10lbs, and was recently foul hooked in the belly.(still bleeding from it.) Didn't want to risk it so I let it go.

After that I moved 50 yards up river around 2 or so. 30 minutes or so goes by and BAM huge fish on! Right in the mouth. It was a HUGE hatch king. 10 min fight later and it was in the net and on my catch card.

Anyways the picture is the de-deaded and de-gutted fish after I got it home.

This is my first time reporting to this website. I have followed it from the start of this year and like the layout. Therefore, I figure I should catch some fish and make a report!

Only Problem; The Nisqually River is not listed in the river section to make a report about. (So I chose the puyallup)

To the report!

So I got to the river about 530 this morning and rigged up after my hike down the jblm side of the river.After my third cast of the morning and about a 12-15 minute fight, I was marking my catch card with a 19lb hatch king(Buck) and taking a short break. about 630 I hooked into something small, probably a pink or a jack that shook itself off the hook after a minute or so. Then at 7:10 I hooked into a beautiful 16lb hatch king (Hen) 15 min later she was landed and I was on my way back to my truck before 730. A Great day fishing (for an hour) by myself! I generally choose to use between 10 and 14 lb test to those who think 15 minutes is a long time got a 15-20lb King LOL. Great to get some kings on the card! Good Luck all and Tight lines!!!

Editors Note: I replied to your request to add the Nisqually. It is there, in Thurston County.

Got to the river and fished from 11 to 4 with no luck. Water was high and very muddy with only a 3” visibility. Left the train bridge area and went to a different spot. The only fish I seen caught were from a snag master across the river, I guess he can't catch them legitly? Anyways nothing much happening on the river. Oh on a side note I didn't get snagged up and broken off the whole time today. I believe that's some kind of record for that river??
