Los Angeles, CA, December 18, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The returning run of red (sockeye) salmon will be over 6 million for 2012 according to the Alaska Deoartment of Fish and Game. That means another record year of sport fishing in the Kenai River.
When a strong run of returning fish are announced, the battle for tourist space in lodges and with outfitters on the Kenai becomes significant. In response to that, Alaska Hooksetters and Russell Fishing are running a joint event called the Super Playoffs Special. In summary, "If your home team wins the Superbowl, you will be eligible for up to a 10% savings" per Cap'n Gilz at 541-254-0679. Call him or check out the Russell Fishing and Alaska Hooksetters websites for more details.
Proper management of the various species by Fish and Game is also important and with new measurement tools in place, that facet should be well managed. Also, appropriate management of the commercial fishery is relevant so that the returning Kings get into the Kenai and meet important escapement goals.
