Since I've joined this forum, a good deal of the discussion revolves around the Kenai River, and more specifically the king salmon fishery. I know I've asked a lot of questions that never uncovered any answers. It's quite obvious that most user groups find representation in the Alaska Fishing forum based on the different types of users/user groups that spend time sharing thoughts in these threads. A lot of you have offered thoughts/proposals/visions for what you deem fair and balanced, but I have yet to see a thread dedicated solely to what solution might save, or better yet salvage, the Kenai River. So...

What would you recommend to enhance and sustain the Kenai River? Please, please cite rationales for your ideas and if you have any hard data to support your conclusions, let us know. Drift only days... commercial fishing adjustments... limited entry for guides... staggered days or start times for guided and non-guided anglers... How and why???

If you feel the status quo does not warrant any change, why?
