Noticed the Kenai river is about 500,000 fish low to the last 3 year average , to date.
50,000 fish per day need to enter the river for the next 10 days to reach the 1.2 million goal.
Could happen but would be way out of the norm .
Lots of commercial openings (almost everyday) thru the normal peak run days, July 14th thru the 23rd.
Sure hope F&G were/are right to let the Drifters at them & the numbers improve.
Drifters are out again today even with the numbers well below the norm.
Could also be the sonar count is off.
Chart shows 2014 daily, then 2014 total (about 500k low) then the totals from 2013, 2012 & 2011 on same day:

Charts shows 2010 was a lower return year too, & this year is well below 2010
Different / New sonar since 2010 numbers may be the difference too. ?

If the numbers aren't reached soon, then what ?
