The total harvest for the bay is around 1.2 million, as of yesterday. Taking a look across the bay, the total run is at around 8.5 million. The numbers seem to be picking up on the eastside again.

A big bump of fish hit the Naknek-Kvichak and Egegik yesterday -- those fleets caught most of the bay's daily harvest of nearly 1.2 million. Total harvest around the bay is now approaching 5 million, and the total run is at around 6.8 million.

Runs are late and harvests are low, but anticipation is high across the bay. Egegik had the biggest daily catch again. Nushagak's fleet has openers coming up. And analysts say the run could still reach the pre-season forecast.

Fish are picking up around the bay. The run leapt past the 4 million fish mark and is approaching 5 million, and the runs in the Naknek-Kvichak and Egegik both passed 1 million yesterday. Egegik had the largest daily harvest. In the Nushagak, the total run passed 2 million.

Bristol Bay’s health corporation now says the case originally reported as a resident of Dillingham is a non-resident case. Local health officials are unclear on exactly how many active cases there are in the bay.

Fishing in Egegik gets a boost as the run picks up there -- that fleet is looking at a set of openers. A push of fish up the Naknek River doubled the total escapement there yesterday, as the bay-wide run approaches 4 million.

The total run in the bay passed 3 million yesterday. Kings are still low in the Nushagak, and the sockeye aren’t pushing that hard yet, either. The sockeye run up the Chignik River is roughly half of what it was at this point in 2018, when the fishery saw its lowest run since statehood.

The total run in the bay has passed 2 million. The run in the Naknek-Kvichak is late -- that’s in line with the past five years. And there are fewer boats around the bay than the past several years. But the harvest on the east side is bigger than it has been. A boat also caught fire Saturday in the Nushagak District.
