November - 18th
Speaker -- Nello Picinich, Executive
Director of CCA Washington
For those of you who don’t know, CCA Washington is an
advocacy group for salmon, steelhead, and our other Northwest
fish. Their job is to give voice to this precious resource that
cannot defend itself against destruction.
Nationally the CCA is a non-profit organization comprised of
17 coastal state chapters spanning the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic
and Pacific Coasts. CCA's strength is drawn from the tens of
thousands of recreational saltwater anglers who make up its
membership. From South Texas to the upper reaches of Maine,
CCA's grassroots influence is felt through state capitals, U.S.
Congress and, most importantly, in the conservation and
restoration of our coastal marine resources.

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.
