From an ADFG News Release:

Effective Thursday, August 2, the Afognak River drainage and adjacent salt waters will re-open to fishing for sockeye (red) salmon.

As of July 30, the sockeye salmon weir count of 19,561 fish indicates that the escapement goal of 20,000 50,000 into the Afognak River drainage will be achieved, thus the sport fishery can be reopened.

The re-opened area includes all fresh waters of the Afognak River drainage, as well as those salt waters of Afognak Bay inside of a line from Settlement Point (5803.00 N lat., 15243.70 W long.) to Otrubistoi Point (58 02.00 N lat., 152 45.50 W long.)
