Nushagak District put 1 million sockeye on the books yesterday. On tonight's show we hear from a Coffee Point set netter and from a drift fisherman in Egegik. KDLG's fish reporter Mitch Borden checks in from Chignik Bay just hours after he landed in the village. Also, a Dillingham doctor gives tips on how to stay healthy when the season gets tough.
