Many ideas will be held up by this report, while many will be sunk.
Those who felt that fishing for sockeye was tough, that less fish were available to be caught in PU, sport or commercial fisheries, are supported by this report. Those who claimed the run was great and fishing effort/skill were the reason for poor results, are not supported by this report. Total run was estimated 5.2 million, 27% less than forecast.
A couple pieces of info from the report: Peak CPUE in the cook inlet central district drift fishery on non corridor days was 3rd lowest since '85. Upper District set peak daily harvest was 2nd lowest since '81. Peak daily passage rate in the Kenai was the lowest ever in the sonar era which began in the late 70's.
