From an ADFG News Release:
The Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Division of Sport Fish will be sampling king (Chinook) salmon caught in the Kenai River sport fishery above the Soldotna Bridge for age, sex, length, and genetics. This sampling project will help estimate the harvest of king salmon in the Kenai River by sub-stock and run timing. A similar sampling program has been in place below the Soldotna Bridge for several years.
From June 19 through July 31, anglers fishing the Kenai River between the Soldotna Bridge and the Moose River, or between Bingís Landing and the outlet of Skilak Lake, may be contacted on the water or at boat landing places by ADF&G staff. Staff would like to quickly measure the fish and take a small tissue sample from near the pelvic fin. This tissue sample can be used to determine the water of origin, whether itís the mainstem of the Kenai River or one of its tributary streams.
The Division would greatly appreciate the cooperation of anglers in this effort.
