    My take on it? They wanna know what species folks prefer to target, where they prefer to target them, and to what extent they rely on guides to get the job done.

    They're also trying to get a better idea of what kinds of fee structure, crowd management, and regulatory structure folks would be willing to tolerate before they opt out of fishing the Kenai altogether.

    Things like...

    Additional fees
    No fishing under motorized power
    More drift days
    Breaking up the river into drift and non-drift reaches
    King closures
    Sockeye closures
    Coho closures
    Bank fishing no closer than "X" ft from your nearest neighbor

    They present scenarios using combinations of the above to see if folks would still fish under that package. or opt out.

    Deadline for participation is July 10. Interested to see the final report once all the data are analyzed.

    Didn't get it, but would like to know who commissioned it. State Parks? And what it will be used for (besides looking impressive on someone's bookshelf?).

    The survey is being conducted by the Institute of Social and Economic Research, University of Alaska Anchorage.

    Same org that came out with the recent study showing that the state "loses" money on commercial fishing. Many expenditures were credited toward commfish that actually help out both sportfish and tourism industries. It was not exactly 100% accurate, and was allowed to be played in the media in the worst possible way for commfish, and the questionable budget numbers from ADFG were not really examined. Would seem pretty partisan if their next report was about the economic boon which is sportfishing, but I am admittedly (and appropriately) paranoid. From my brief perusal of their website I see that Gunnar Knapp was the director and has retired and someone else has taken over. I hope they keep sportfish interests at arms length as far as their study is confirmed. KRSA has a way of making any study look greasy, and I heard they were working on something (came up during sockeye stamp discussions). Was the sockeye stamp mentioned?
