From an ADFG News Release:

The Ayakulik River king salmon and sockeye (red) salmon fisheries will close Wednesday, June 27, for the remainder of the year, due to low escapement. In addition, no bait will be allowed in the Ayakulik drainage from June 27, 2007 through July 31, 2007, in order to reduce mortality of accidentally-caught king salmon.

These same restrictions for Karluk River king salmon remain in effect.

As of June 24, the escapement in the Ayakulik River was 2,482 king salmon and 77,303 sockeye salmon. Using recent time of entry data, ADF&G is projecting that the spawning escapement goals on the Ayakulik River will not be achieved.
