ANCHROAGE, Alaska -- The Department of Fish and Game's decision approving set net fishing near the mouth of the Kenai does not sit well with some fishermen.
Fish and Game is allowing set nets to raise money for its sockeye fishery assessment for the upper Cook Inlet commercial fishing season in July.
The Kenai River Sportfishing Association says Fish and Game is targeting early run Russian River Sockeye to pay for their assessment program.
A Fish and Game representative says, that's not the case and the Russian River Sockeye run should not be affected by the set nets.
