Emergency Order

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game has issued an emergency order (EO) for the Kenai River. Effective 12:01am Wednesday, June 13th. The Kenai River will be catch and release only until June 30th. The details can be found here.

The bottom line is the biologists feel the minimum escapement goal will not be met. Although disappointing to people who would like a meal or two of king salmon, measures like this are warranted to sustain a healthy future.

Jane and I have contacted nearly all of our June guests about the changes. The good news for us is most still want to recreate on the Kenai River. They feel catching and releasing king salmon on a quiet river will be a lot of fun.
