It's the KDLG pledge drive! Please donate! Make it possible for us to provide news and info like this: The run is late this year, but it’s ramping way up across the bay. The total run passed 11 million fish yesterday, with some of the biggest harvests we’ve seen yet this season in 3 of the bay’s districts.

The clinical director of the Bristol Bay Area Health Corporation retired on June 30th. The COVID-19 pandemic punctuated her final months in the region. But the doctor’s time in Bristol Bay -- and her most memorable moments -- extend far beyond the pandemic.

Fish are moving fast now, as the total run across the bay crests 8.5 million. Egegik brought in almost 700,000 fish -- the biggest harvest of the bay so far this season. The Naknek-Kvichak now has the most vessels in the bay.

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.

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.
