Nisqually River Cleanup

November 12, 2011

SSFF members,

Come join other SSFF members on Saturday, November 12th, between 10 AM and noon, for a river clean up outing on the Nisqually River. The focus will be on removing discarded fishing lines, hooks, lead weights and related packaging from the river bank and shallow water in the vicinity of the WDFW handicap river access. Garbage bags and nitrile gloves will be provided. Bring heavier gloves if you wish. A pocket knife for cutting tangled fishing line from branches and logs would be helpful. Following the cleanup, join other members at Norma’s (Martin Way near the Nisqually exit off I-5) for lunch.


Directions: from Olympia, take the Nisqually exit. From the off ramp, turn right and go straight past the stop light onto the Nisqually Cut-off Rd SE. Proceed for about 1.25 miles and turn left on to Kuhlman Rd SE. At the stop sign, turn left onto Old Pacific Highway SE. Proceed about .25 miles and turn right onto 6 Ave SE. Follow it to the WDFW fishing access at the end of the road. From Tacoma, take the Mounts Road exit. Take the overpass over I-5 and proceed for about 2.5 miles. Turn left onto 6 Ave SE. Follow it until you reach the WDFW access. Bring your parking permit. Hope to see you there. If you have questions, you can reach me at 360-866-9116, or by email:
