We want to welcome you to one of our meetings and
a chance to have fun, meet new people, expand your friendship circle, improve
your fishing skills and be part of a group that intends to make a difference.
Chapter meetings are held the fourth Wednesday of every month.
January 25th General Meeting
Lawrence McCrone, a master docent with the non-profit Friends of
the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery, will provide a presentation on the
life cycle of Pacific salmon, the operations of the Issaquah
Salmon Hatchery, and the critical role of volunteers in the
various functions of the hatchery. The primary function of the
hatchery is to raise chinook and coho salmon to supplement wild
runs, although the hatchery also raises rainbow trout for
stocking local lakes and kokanee to try to restore the native
populations of this endangered landlocked relative of sockeye
salmon. This hatchery is unique in that it is not only in the
middle of a major metropolitan area but it serves as a major
educational venue for school children and the general public.

Nisqually River Access
The Nisqually River runs through Fort Lewis so it is best to get
access to the fort. Access Range Control operates the Area
Access office to issue permits and grant non-training access to
the Range Complex. The Area Access office is located in Building
4074, at the intersection of Stryker and Kaufman Avenues, JBLM-Main.
Go to the visitor center located at exit 120 on I-5. You will
need your drivers license, insurance information, and
registration for your vehicle. Ask for a pass so that you can go
to the Range office.
