Fishing Report Week Ending 7/5/15
Well, that's my report of the beginning of the late run king salmon fishery on the Kenai. A bit slow, a bit small, but hey, we were fishing. But before I end this post I thought I would comment about the early king salmon run. As you know, the river was closed to all king salmon fishing in May and June. Because of the drastic measures taken, the Kenai met the bottom end of the optimum escapement goal (OEG) by almost a thousand fish. In my opinion, it could have easily opened to catch and release opportunites in the middle of June. But, for reasons beyond me, ADFG decided to leave it closed. Hopefully, and my fingers are crossed, this closure will result in strong returns in the years to come. Long live the kings.
Until next week, tight lines!
