    That's what happens when you increase the lower-river bag limit to 6/day and open dipnetting 24 hours/day??

    Maybe?

    I wonder what restrictions lower in the Kenai and in the salt will be triggered by this closure?

    My guess is none since the kenai numbers are pretty close to where they want them to be

    I was trying to figure out why they did not close it sooner. Was hoping they knew of some big slug holed up somewhere that would make the counts.

    Hope it does not hurt the out years too much.

    Let's follow this allocation thought through shall we.. The increase in sport bag limits is ratcheted up when the run forcast was increased to be from 2-4 million... This is strickly an allocative issue to MAXIMIZE commercial harvest.. Netters in the inlet had an increase from 24 hours a week to an additional 51 hours a week. Not to mention the slaughter in the PU fishery this year. Sport harvest was undoubtably large, but was the crumbs left after the commercial and pu fishery allocation....

    Folks we need increased conservation of the cook inlet commerical fisheries.... Managers are failing to leave buffers for stocks that return poorly when mixed with stocks that have strong returns....

    Agree 100% -- at the beginning of the run we only caught the big reds down in Soldotna area. Didn't have a single Russian red on the stringers those days. Towards the tail of the run there were more Russian reds on the stringer. I think the Russian run was late and got caught in 24hr commercial fishing and dipnetting and was hit much harder than the first part of the run that didn't go to the Russian......

    Dragon - I don't know if that's all that big a deal, not that many people fish the Russian this late in the year anyways (compared to the last week of July anyways)
