folks, many rivers in Alaska have heavy restrictions in place to protect the king runs. I here the same thing year after year, "blame , blame, blame " pointing fingers. enough pushing the blame around. I didn't have any problems harvesting chums for subsistence with a dipnet on the lower Yukon last summer. it took a little longer but jot the job done. its time to flip the coin over and look at the pink salmon. every other year or so, there's enough pink salmon running in the lower Yukon, you can almost walk on top of them.
now there's got to be some genius out there who can work with a fisheries group like cvrf (coastal villages regional fund) to create a market with the pinks. perhaps the guy who turned white fish and pollock into imitation crab.
