Ran out to the Nisqually for the first time this year and took my Uncle Ricky (AKA: Squatch). I fished mostly with corkie & yarn of various color schemes but to no avail. I did see a pretty nice fish jump but he must not have been hungry for my humble offering. I did toss out a spinner for a while but not so much as a quiver or a faint nibble. And to sum it up, I saw no one that had even gotten a looksie from a fish there today.

Probably still a little early, give it another couple of weeks, should be plenty of fish around by then.

Just a heads up, WDFW issued a rule change closing the Nisqually River on Sundays from the mouth to the tank crossing bridge above Muck Creek, closure is in effect Aug 1 - Nov 15, 2019. Can read the rule change here - https://fortress.wa.gov/dfw/erules/efishrules/erule.jsp?id=2375

About the time the blackberries are ripe is the time to start hitting it.

Fished handicap hole at first light, then 3 or 4 sections of the military access. Approx. 40 anglers and observed 6 hook ups in 6 hours, 2 foul hooked and 2 lost. Fish were tailing and pushing up with the tide change, but few and far between. Saw more dark Springers than chrome. Slow slow slow it'll be a few more weeks before they start stacking up

I've been down a few times, two days ago the most recent to a couple of my hot spots.. Usually have at least a handful on the card by now, sitting with a big 0 right now.. agreed with above, slower than usual this year.
