From an ADFG News Release:
The Alaska Department of Fish and Game announced that starting Saturday, July 7, 2007 the sport fish bag and possession limit at Redoubt Bay and Lake near Sitka will be six sockeye salmon.
The Redoubt Bay and Lake Sockeye Salmon Management Plan provides management provisions for sport, subsistence, and commercial fisheries that harvest Redoubt Lake sockeye salmon based on an optimal escapement goal of 7,000 to 25,000 fish. The plan directs ADF&G to establish a bag and possession limit of 6 sockeye salmon in Redoubt Bay and the Redoubt Lake drainage if the projected total escapement is greater than 30,000 sockeye salmon. The Redoubt Lake weir, operated by the U.S. Forest Service was installed and operational by June 17, 2007. As of July 4, 2007, 4,531 sockeye salmon had passed the Redoubt weir. Based on previous years run timing, the 2007 escapement is expected to exceed 40,000 sockeye salmon. Therefore, the department is establishing a bag and possession limit of 6 sockeye salmon for all sport anglers.
Snagging by nonresidents will remain prohibited in all waters of Redoubt Bay south of 56° 54.71’ N. latitude (see attached map) from July 7 through August 31. Other management measures will be implemented for the Redoubt Lake and Bay subsistence fishery and announced via a separate news release.
