Kenai red run. How will the new comfish regs impact it?
I am trying to make heads and tails out of the new plans but cant say I understand them. With the new comfish rules and areas in place how will it impact the in river run? more fish in the river? less fish in the river?
The plans did not change the in-river sockeye goals and therefore if the runs are less than 3 million the new regs will keep the number of fish in the river about the same. At large run strengths depending on the chinook run there is a good probability that escapement goals will be exceeded.
