    REGULATION:
    Consistent with the COPPER RIVER PERSONAL USE DIP NET SALMON FISHERY MANAGEMENT PLAN, 5 AAC 77.591, the personal use dip net salmon fishery in the Chitina Subdistrict of the Upper Copper River District will be open from 12:01 a.m. Sunday, June 7 through 11:59 p.m. Sunday, June 7.

    Sam Cotten
    Commissioner
    by delegation to: Mark A. Somerville/ Area Management Biologist

    JUSTIFICATION:
    The Copper River personal use fishery is managed under direction outlined in the Copper River Personal Use Dip Net Salmon Fishery Management Plan (5 AAC 77.591). The plan establishes the season from June 7 through September 30, and directs the department to establish weekly periods based on Miles Lake sonar counts. During May 18 24, there were 112,200 salmon counted past the Miles Lake sonar. The preseason projection for this period was 48,142 salmon, which results in a surplus of 64,058 salmon. Copper River sockeye salmon migratory timing and the previous five-year average harvest and participation rates indicate sufficient numbers of salmon available to maintain 24 hours of fishing time during the week of June 1 June 7.

    DISTRIBUTION:
    The distribution list for this emergency order is on file at the Region III Office of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Division of Sport Fish, 1300 College Road, Fairbanks, AK 99701, (907) 459-7357 and the Glennallen Area Office of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Division of Sport Fish, PO Box 47, Glennallen, AK 99588, (907) 822-3309.

    Might as well start out with a silly question. In looking at the Miles Lake fish counter. If a daily run of 10 fish is added to the cumulative total of 20, would that not be 30 fish. I see many of the totals just don't add up. Or am I looking at it wrong?

    I don't know how to answer the question Daveinthebush. Fish and Game sent me both documents that I posted, and I haven't really had time to read thru them. So what you see, is what I got from them to post. Hope you can make heads and tails out of it.
