As always Casey was great and really made the trip enjoyable, it is
nice to see someone that actually likes their job and brings a great
attitude to work.  His knowledge is really helpful and refreshing.

Again just wanted to say thank you and let you guys know your
doing a great job and would be highly recommended to friends,
family and co-workers.

All my grandson wants to do is go fishing with Papa and Captain
Casey again.  At my age, one of the most important things in my life
is to have these treasured moments with my grandchildren, and this
was one of those moments.

Casey is an outstanding guide- this was the first time out fishing
with a guide for me and he did an excellent job of putting us on the
fish and giving us an excellent day on the river..... i will look
forward to fishing with Casey in the future for steelhead

The Nisqually River is located in West Central
Washington State and travels through Lewis, Pierce
and Thurston Counties.  

The Nisqually River originates on the southern side of
Mt Rainer from the Nisqually Glacier.  The Nisqually
River travels approximately 81 miles from the Nisqually
Glacier until it reaches Puget Sound near Lacey,
Washington.

Nisqually is pronounced, niskwali, and is named for the
Niqually Indian Tribe.  The Nisqually Tribe originally
occupied the area surrounding the river.

The tributaries of the Nisqually River include Muck
Creek, Yelm Creek, Tanwax Creek, Ohop Creek,
Mashel River, Little Nisqually River, East Creek,
Mineral Creek and Big Creek.

There are two dams located on the Nisqually River: the
LaGrande Dam and Alder Dam.

The Nisqually River is a popular place to fish for
Salmon.

The Lake formed behind Alder Dam is called Alder
Lake.  Alder Lake is stocked with Kokanee, or land
locked salmon, by Tacoma Power who owns and
operates the dam.  Tacoma Power began stocking Alder
Lake with 500,000 Kokanee Salmon a year in 1999.  
This provided anglers with an excellent source of
fishing opportunities.  Many of these salmon now spawn
in tributaries near the lake.

Tacoma Power also fully funds the Nisqually Tribe's
Clear Creek Hatchery.  This Nisqually River hatchery
produces 4 million chinook smolts and one million coho
smolts each year.
