From an ADFG News Release:
The Russian River Sanctuary will be open to sockeye (red) salmon sport fishing beginning 8:00 a.m., Monday, June 18. The daily bag and possession limit remains three (3) sockeye salmon.
The Sanctuary Area includes waters upstream from ADF&G regulatory markers located just downstream of the ferry crossing on the Kenai River to ADF&G regulatory markers located approximately 300 yards upstream of the public boat launch at Sportsman’s Landing (including the waters around the upstream end of the island near the Russian River mouth) and the Russian River from its mouth upstream 100 yards to ADF&G regulatory markers. There is a map of the area on page 53 of the 2007 Southcentral Alaska regulation booklet.
The Department has determined that the early-run sockeye salmon spawning escapement goal of 14,000 – 37,000 sockeye salmon will be achieved.
Anglers are reminded to chop their filleted red salmon fish carcasses into small pieces, and throw the pieces into deep, flowing waters. Please respect the riverbank restoration projects and stay on the established pathways in the Sanctuary Area, campground areas, and Russian River Ferry area.
