Last week on the Alagnak I had a run-in with NPS enforcement. They were a couple of kids who had no idea what was going on in the area. These guys came up and wanted to do license checks on the two clients and myself. I told them that it was inconvenient as we were fishing and they would have to come back later. They showed up to do checks the next morning at camp. When I asked about jurisdiction, they informed me that we were in the Alagnak National Preserve. I've never heard of the Alagnak National Preserve. After asking about their right to ticket people in the corridor they promptly left and didn't bother us again.
Does NPS enforcement have a right to harass fishermen on the Alagnak? We were about 3/4 of the way between the confluence of Kukaklek and Nonvianuk and the cabin, right after a heavily braided section. This puts us outside of Katmai if all of my maps are correct.
Any idea where I can find out their enforcement ability?
