Humpy catch ends, coho opener wait for rain

“We still haven’t gotten a lot of rain, so we’re tracking behind in escapement and the (coho) commercial harvest is below anticipated,” said Jeremy Botz, gillnet area management biologist for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in Cordova.

Rainfall offers relief as PWS humpy harvest climbs to 46M+

Long sought rain and cooling weather over the past week helped boost the Prince William Sound pink salmon harvest to 46,290,000 fish, and the area’s overall salmon catch to 54,525,000 fish.

Statewide harvest, boosted by the pink catch, rises to nearly 185M fish

“If we start getting rainfall this weekend and if continues for the next couple of weeks for these fish to spawn, we could be okay,” said Charlie Russell, seine area management biologist for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in Cordova.
