    Default Semi-official Copper River/Miles Lake numbers thread

    Figured I'd start a separate one since they're kinda get mixed up in several threads.

    May 31 count: 9,914

    Numbers are going up. Good signs!!

    (They posted the count fast...hope that trend continues throughout the season)

    If I'm reading the note right, that count is just from 6am-noon?

    I got it now. They updated it again with the total total. That's a really good sign...a normal number. Fish on-ish?

    "The harvest estimate from the Monday, May 27 12-hour period was 311,000 sockeye and 3,200 Chinook salmon. The anticipated harvest for this opening was 116,000 sockeye salmon and 1,700 Chinook salmon. The 5-year harvest average for the May 27 harvest date was 53,400 sockeye salmon and 1,640 Chinook salmon."

    Dam they hit them very hard. Maybe they'll wait two weeks before the next Commercial opening as they've dipped, so to say, a little to heavy into the well and left it dry. Can't believe this kind of cleanup of the fish holding back is in the management plan.

    Default a lot...

    Math quiz:
    21k yesterday with 0600 count of 3.8k.
    How many today with 0600 count of 5.2k?

    I'd say we have a good shot of hitting the 30k threshold that I predicted....

    Coho...only 97 fish short of winning a free trip...

    Default Here's the ADF&G math

    The count from midnight through 6:00 am this morning was 5,246 fish, which projects to a daily count of 20,984 fish.
    Actual count was 24,903. FG just multiplies by 4, assuming that the 0000-0600 run is consistent all day long.

    I've had years of training as a fisheries biologist's son. It's finally paying off....

    17,655 yesterday. Not bad. Not as good as I'd predicted, either.

    I sent an email to Jeremy Botz who is the fisheries biologist in Cordova indicating that I'm not very happy about them allowing the gill netters to destroying the early run. jeremy.botz@alaska.gov if you want to voice your concerns.

    It's closed indefinitely until numbers at the counter improve.

    That's the first good news I've heard on this year's run. Of course it's after a lot of bad news, the lateness of the run and the heavy harvest by comm fisheries and that impact on that very first (and maybe a few additional) run.

    0600 count today 6490 x 4 = 25960 "Finominal"

    If the water level keeps slowly dropping, and the numbers stay that good, next weekend could be slammin'! Looks like no fish have made it up there yet, unless they aren't manning that fishwheel yet, but I think with the numbers in the river, a big surge is going to happen and yes, it will be finominal! Just hope we aren't early!

    Take that back, bro...one fish was caught at Canyon Creek today. Rock 'n' roll!

    Could be bad news, they might have caught the scout. If he doesn't go back, the rest might not follow.

    No worries, they stuck a radio in 'im and let him get back to business. Now he's tactical...
