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 (58°03.00 N lat., 152°43.70’ W long.) to Otrubistoi Point (58° 02.00’ N lat., 152° 45.50’ W long.)
