Nisqually River to close to fishing Jan. 6

Fishing will close on the Nisqually River Jan. 6-31, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife announced Friday.

The agency states the closure is because “In-season data suggests that the chum run is lower than forecast and the escapement goal may not be met. Both WDFW and the Nisqually Tribe are closing their respective fisheries.”
