First time saltwater fishing south sound

My roommate has a boat do we are going to try to launch and fish the sound near the mouth of the nisqually. Can anyone give me information about a boat launch in the area and some tips about the area? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
if your after pinks save your time, they ain't there. I don't know what is running up the river right now as I haven't been fishing it. just been fishing pinks in MA11. good luck.

Thomas, the pink fishing is still slow however, you can pick some up around Dash Point area. Launch at PT Defiance ($13 fee) and then head north east to Dash.
yep, your best bet as above. we have been catching some pinks at browns point which is a straight shot from Pt. Defiance. you can start there and troll north to dash point. there are some kings and coho in the area also. good luck
