I am not 100% sure what escapement is this year for the Kenai, I have been hearing 750,000 as the magic number. I am also not exactly sure if that number is needed after the sportfish catch is taken out (usually around 240,000 fish). As of right now the escapment is right at 600,000 and we just dropped to under 10,000 per day. The run seems to be tailing off, I wonder if they are going to make escapement. Personally, I am very surprised they went to a limit of 6 fish when they did.
Fishing has been really slow, actually the slowest I have ever seen it below skilak for this time of year. Maybe they are starting to show at the Russian.
As for the Silvers they are non-existant in the river right now. Maybe in a week or two. Personal experience has shown me that about 2 or 3 days after the nets get pulled we get a good push of silvers. (not a knock on the comfish, just and observation)
