Here is the emergency order opening the susitna drainage for reds
SUSITNA RIVER SOCKEYE SALMON FISHERY RE-OPENED
Beginning Friday, August 11, at 12:01 a.m., anglers may fish for and retain sockeye (red) salmon in that part of the Susitna River drainage that is open to salmon fishing, which is described as Susitna River Units 1-6 on pages 45-52 of the 2006 Southcentral Alaska sport fishing regulation summary.
Sockeye salmon escapement for the Susitna River, as measured by the Departmentís Yentna River sonar project, has exceeded the lower end of the escapement goal range of 90,000-160,000. As of August 9, 2006, 90,312 sockeye salmon have been counted past the sonar. Since most of the sport harvest of Susitna River sockeye salmon from the Susitna River normally takes place before August 1, the Department projects that fewer than 1,000 sockeye salmon will be harvested as a result of this emergency order.
