    Default Where are the Kasilof reds?

    So anybody else been following the fish counts for the kasilof?
    They seem pretty dismal. Are the commercial guys out there hard or is the going to be a bad year? Interested to hear what people think.

    It's still early. So far the in-river cumulative is above average, actually.

    They are waiting for me to arrive next week before they make a run for fresh water.

    Got some bigger tides this weekend and early next, the fishing should pick up big time.

    I will be down there Sunday night till we get our limit or run out of food or gas. Should be right in the middle of the big run if the fish stick to historical trends.

    Kasilof Emergency Opening Set Gillnet Wednesday 7/13

    http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/static/ho...f/38077530.pdf

    UPPER COOK INLET COMMERCIAL FISHING ANNOUNCEMENT No. 10
    EMERGENCY ORDER NUMBER 2S-10-11


    Upper Cook Inlet Commercial Fishing Announcement No. 10 opens set gillnetting in that portion
    of the Kasilof Section of the Upper Subdistrict within mile of the mean high tide mark on the
    Kenai Peninsula shoreline from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 13, 2011.

    The escapement rate of sockeye salmon into the Kasilof River is proceeding at a rate greater
    than that needed to assure optimum escapement levels, while Kenai River sockeye salmon total
    return levels are not yet known. In order to harvest surplus Kasilof stocks, given the scenario just
    described, additional fishing time in the above-described area is warranted.


    8am-5pm

    Default Kasilof Believe it or Not

    For those struggling through the commercial openings at the Kasilof, take heart. Last year's cumulative total for this date was 103,462 compared with 103,859 for this year.

    Optimal escapement goal is 160,000 to 390,000 the minimum of which was met last year just six days after the 12th.

    Historically highest escapement days are the 17th and the 24th. Subtract 1/2 day up to 3 days for transit time to the counter gives you the window of THIS FRIDAY TO THE END OF NEXT WEEK.

    Remember, though, if you wait too long, the commercial boats get the order to cork off the mouth of the river and then you have to just ferget it.


    The Kasilof is NOT managed for the sake of personal use fishing. You just have to deal with it.
