Emergency Order #2

Long live the kings!
Not the news I was hoping for, but due to lower returning numbers than expected, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game has announced the Kenai River will be closed to king salmon fishing starting Wednesday, June 20th. The king fishery will reopen in the lower Kenai River on July 1st. Details of the order can be found here.

On the upside, not all Emergency Orders are negative. A strong run of red salmon at the Russian River has allowed the sanctuary to be opened to fishing on Tuesday, June 19th at 8:00am. Last week, ADFG announced the limit for Resurrection Bay red salmon has doubled. If you want to harvest a bunch of salmon, this is clearly where you'll want to be.
