Fishermen in the Naknek River hauled in over a half million fish yesterday, and all three Nushagak District rivers have now hit their escapement goal midrange.
For the seventh time this season and the ninth time ever, the Nushagak District brought in over a million sockeye on Wednesday. Fish also hit the Naknek River hard yesterday, and the 283 boats netted 532,000 reds.
ADF&G biologists Travis Elison and Tim Sands discuss their management strategies for the Naknek-Kvichak District and Nushagak districts for the coming days.
Also on tonight's show, we remember two Bristol Bay fishermen who died, one of cancer ealier this year, the other in a boating accident 18 years ago today.
