From an ADFG News Release:

To provide additional sport fish harvest opportunity, bag and possession limits for sockeye salmon 20 inches or greater in length in the Karluk River drainage increased from 5 per day and 10 in possession to 10 per day and 20 in possession. This emergency order is effective beginning 12:01 a.m., Thursday, June 21 through 11:59 p.m., Sunday, July 15.

The escapement goal for the early return of sockeye salmon into the Karluk drainage is 100,000 to 210,000 fish. As of June 18, 178,000 sockeye salmon have been counted through the Karluk weir. Based on historic run timing, the upper end of the escapement goal will be exceeded in 2007.

The bag and possession limits for salmon species other than sockeye salmon and for sockeye salmon less than 20 inches are not affected by this emergency order.
