Sportsfishing EO to Come, First for Alaska

Department of Fish and Game Management Biologist Robert Begich told us this morning that he will be releasing an emergency order later today…


Begich: “We’re going to be issuing an emergency order today that will be effective on Saturday, so folks are going to want to keep an eye out for that and more information will be available this afternoon, and it will be a first for Alaska, so that should perk some interest.”


Late-run Kenai king salmon counts are still very low, though Begich said it’s not clear if that’s because the fish aren’t there or because they just haven’t made it into the river yet…

Begich: “Tides are going to mellow out here over the weekend, in that there won’t be as much water moving in the Inlet, so that’ll be better for folks out there and then hopefully that’ll put some salmon into the Kenai River.”
