Kenai River king salmon restricted to catch-and-release

After a slow start and declining return projections, the Kenai River king salmon fishery will move to catch-and-release fishing beginning Saturday through the season's July 31 ending. For the first time in Alaska's history, the catch-and-release fishery will be accompanied by a restriction to barbless hooks. Starting Saturday, king salmon caught in the Kenai River cannot be retained or in possession and cannot be removed from the water - they must be released immediately, according to a Thursday emergency order.

In a flurry of emergency orders and news releases Thursday the Alaska Deparment of Fish and Game announced efforts to conserve king salmon by putting restrictions on personal-use fishing and inriver anglers - triggering restrictions for commercial fishers in the east side setnet fishery. Managers justified the restrictions with the explanation that Cook Inlet king salmon have continued to return in low numbers in recent years. The Kenai River has had below-average run strength since 2009, according to a Fish and Game media release.
