After reading the fishing regs for the Kenai, am I correct in understanding that anglers may retain up to 10 "jack" sockeye and/or coho (measuring less than 16 inches), in addition to the standard daily limit for adult fish (three reds / two silvers)?
While fishing second-run reds on the lower river in past years, I probably included some undersized fish in my adult harvest that didn't need to be counted. Since those were just "bonus babies," I could have retained them and kept fishing.
It pays to read the regs. Now I know. Definitely packing a tape measure in my fishing vest this summer!
