Well, after throwing in my crab pots in Oro Bay, I decided to take the boat up the Nisqually to see how far I could get up it in my outboard. I noticed on the way up lots of drift nets or bouys for drift nets. Can anyone tell me if those are drift nets or just bouys? It was concerning for the shear volume and all the foam filled floating tires. I was going to call WDFW but don't want to waste their time if it is not derilict gear. I did not fish, just looked around. Thanks for comment. Most of the gear looked ancient, but either way the river looked trashy from the debris.

The Nisqually has been like that for the 30 years I have been fishing / duck hunting it. The nets can only be in the water a few days of the week when the fish are running. This time of year some of the buoys are marking deadheads just under the water which is a good thing so you don't hit it with your out-drive. Also, you need to watch the tides when going up the river, I have seen many boats get stuck high and dry thinking there is enough water to come back down the river It sucks when you have to wait 4 or so hours for the tide to change....
