    In 2018, the weir wasn't installed until May 29.

    Somebody should tell the fish.

    Kenai early run is projecting in the range of 3800-4200 thru June 30 based on the proportionate run-timing seen the previous three years... ~4200 (18) ~3800 (17) and ~4100 (16)

    Yes, and 3,900 is the low end of the goal. I don’t understand why they are allowing C&R on a run that is projecting to miss or marginally make the goal.

    That is the question. Who fishes when catch and release is the only option...answer only those who do not care about the long term health of the resource.

    Paired restrictions. As long as C&R is allowed, the river isn't "closed" to sportfishing. As soon as the river is closed to sportfishing, setnets are also closed or restricted based on "paired restrictions" in the management plans.

    So if I understand this correctly then, there are or will be commercial Cook Inlet gill nets taking early run Kenai kings?

    C&R is being allowed, but have you been on the lower Kenai River lately? I’ve been fishing for reds since early June and have never seen more than ten boats fishing for kings (combination of guides and private boats). Most times I am the only boat out there.

    Unless some one is seeing more than I am, the impact is negligible.
