    Cool Sanctuary Opening

    According to the link below, the first run of reds on the Russian River exceeded the minimum escapement goal of 14,000 yesterday. Any guesses as to when the sanctuary will open? I'm thinking it will be just in time for the Fourth of July weekend.

    I'm sure the EO is imminent.

    The trigger for the sanctuary opener is the bottom end of BEG.... 14K.

    At the top end of BEG (37K), the trigger increases the bag to 6 a day with as many as 12 in possession.

    I'll bet it's open in the morning.

    Default My guess

    Tuesday at midnight. Right after everyone leaves and heads home after beating the water frothy. This will require yet another suicide run, no sleep, mad boss, poor work and a pissed wife.

    Just my guess!

    We're at 15,840 and still no EO posted.

    Tried to call Mr Begich direct, but the front desk at ADFG still says July 15.

    Unhappy Waiting Game

    With so many of the king fisheries closed, I'm surprised that the sanctuary hasn't opened for the holiday weekend yet.

    Considering the low numbers to date, it seems that F&G is hoping for maximum escapement.

    Default Well past peak....

    Spoke to another bio...

    The last look saw only about 500 fish in the sanctuary.

    Whether they open it or not is probably inconsequential.

    It's over.
