    AYAKULIK AND KARLUK RIVERS CLOSED TO SPORT FISHING FOR KING SALMON
    Beginning at 12:01 a.m., Saturday, June 21, sport fishing for king salmon in the Ayakulik and the Karluk River drainages is closed. As an added measure to reduce the possibility of hooking mortality on incidentally caught king salmon, the use of bait is prohibited within Ayakulik River drainage, and within Karluk River drainage below Karluk Lake, include the Karluk Lagoon. Only single-hook artificial lures may be used in these areas.
    The biological escapement goal (BEG) for Ayakulik River king salmon is 4,000 to 7,000 fish. The weir count on June 17 was 350 fish. The biological escapement goal (BEG) for Karluk River king salmon is 3,000 to 6,000 fish. The weir count on June 17 was 256 fish. Despite previous management actions to reduce king salmon mortality during the inriver sport fishery, the escapement goals for both rivers are not likely to be achieved.
    For more information contact the Division of Sport Fish office in Kodiak at (907) 486-1880.

      And just a few days ago the department was certain most of the state was seeing runs that were some 10 days early. Hoping that is NOT the case with Ayakulik, Karluk, and the Little Su!
