From an ADFG News Release:

Beginning at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, September 9, the daily bag limit for silver salmon from the Buskin River drainage will increase to five fish per day and five in possession. On the rest of the Kodiak Road System, the current daily limit for salmon will remain at five, of which only two can be silvers. In addition, Road System streams draining into Chiniak and Monashka bays remain closed to salmon fishing above their highway bridges until the regulatory opening date of September 16.

As of September 7, approximately 8,000 silvers have been counted through the Buskin River weir. This is the highest count on record for this date and over the upper end of the escapement goal range of 3,200 – 7,200 silvers. Since the upper end of the escapement goal has been exceeded, the Buskin River silver salmon bag limit will be increased from 2 to 5 silvers a day.
