Interesting - Bird Creek Emergency Closure
In another thread this week, a few members and I were discussing the fact that some people have been seen fishing at Bird Creek even though it is about a month too early for pinks, silvers, and chums. One member mentioned seeing some kings in there, but also remarked that it is not legal to fish the kings there. Well...apparently some people needed an emergency closure to get the notice.
In order to protect the small native run of kings, F&G has issued an emergency closure on Bird Creek for all fishing, effective through July 14th.
I wondered what was going on. Driving past BC I have seen no less than four people on three occasions fishing. The wife and I figured they were confused tourists.
Thanks for the update.
