by The Associated Press Friday, May 7, 2010 FAIRBANKS, Alaska -- Scientists at the University of Alaska Fairbanks will study the decline of western Alaska king salmon runs. The project will focus on the health and ecology of freshwater king salmon runs and how those factors affect annual returns. Western Alaska river fishermen blame poor king salmon runs on incidental catch by Bering Sea pollock companies. Federal fisheries managers think other factors might also be at work.

Alaska king salmon shortages produced emergency orders Tuesday from federal and state authorities, closing the Kenai River to fishing for kings and restricting fishing on the Kasilof River until at least the end of the month. An emergency order from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service closes the Kenai downriver of Skilak Lake to subsistence fishing for kings, effective from 12:01 a.m. Friday, June 22 through 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, July 14. “Through June 18, all indices used to assess the abundance of early-run Chinook salmon in the Kenai River indicate a run that is well below average and lowest on record,” wrote USFWS biologist Doug Palmer.

by The Associated Press Friday, June 18, 2010 FAIRBANKS, Alaska -- King salmon are running late in the Yukon River, where the return has failed to meet the demand from Alaska villagers or international treaty obligations with Canada the past three years. State and federal fishery managers say it's too early to tell how this year's chinook run will size up after king salmon started showing up in the Yukon River late last week. The first kings were caught in test nets at the mouth of the river on June 9, and first detected at a sonar counter at Pilot Station, about 120 miles upriver, on June 11. Biologist Steve Hayes with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game says the Yukon king run is about five days late at this point, and officials plan to assess the situation this weekend.

“Empty fish racks, after empty fish racks,” said Bev Hoffman of Bethel, describing a trip Friday up the Kuskokwim River, which is lined with family fish camps.   In most years by this time, those racks and smokehouses are filling up with king or chinook salmon, the main staple of the subsistence diet in Southwest Alaska.  Hoffman is co-chair of the Kuskokwim River Salmon Management Working Group, which is mostly made up of subsistence and commercial fishermen representing communities up and down the wide, muddy river.

Summer fishing on the Kenai River typically attracts crowds of sport fishermen hoping for that trophy king -- but another year of low returns means continued restrictions, with the economic impacts being felt throughout the community. Even as state fishing restrictions for king salmon are meant to help the fish recover from dismal numbers, the community of Kenai is seeing a different kind of decline outside the river. Dick Erkeneff is in his tenth season as owner of the Kenai River Raven Bed and Breakfast.

In the contentious world of fish counting, the Alaska Salmon Alliance is trying to reason with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game when it comes to late-run king salmon escapement goals. "We definitely think there's a low cycle of king salmon abundance at this time, no doubt about that, but these kind of cycles have happened before," said Arni Thomson, the alliance's executive director. Thomson is worried the Kenai River's current late-run escapement goals, of 15,000 to 30,000 fish, are actually contributing to the low salmon runs.

The fight for salmon along the Kenai River has been getting more attention after a group representing the setnetters filed a lawsuit last Wednesday against the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADFG) over how it managed the 2013 sockeye salmon run. The Kenai King Conservation Alliance has requested to intervene in the lawsuit, saying it wants to protect king salmon that are caught by setnetters through bycatch. "Once they're gone, they're gone forever," said Bob Penney, founder of the Kenai King Conservation Alliance.

A popular fishing spot in downtown Anchorage is open after a sport fishing closure that lasted nearly two weeks. Ship Creek is again open, and just in time for the start of the silver salmon season. The fishing spot was closed from June 30 to July 13 to all sport fishing. Biologists from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game were conducting escapement surveys, but had trouble counting the king salmon due to the creek's high levels and murky waters. Bruce Bombassaro of The Bait Shack says anglers were ecstatic to have their local fishing spot back.
