The 2018 king salmon runs throughout Cook Inlet have consistently and significantly underperformed DF&G preseason forecasts resulting in restrictions and closures of inriver and marine sport fisheries. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game: “Per the Kenai River Late-Run King Salmon Management Plan, the retention of king salmon in the personal use fishery is prohibited.” The DF&G will continue to monitor the Kenai River run as it develops and additional actions may be taken depending on the run strength. Don’t forget to download the Kenai Dipnet app available for download in the Apple app store and Google Play under the name “Dipnet Kenai” for continued updates throughout the weekend. Alaskans can dipnet on the Kenai River from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. from July 10 (today) through July 31. Permits and licenses are required.
