Tonight we hear about an opener in the Naknek-Kvichak District, summer school has started at Ekuk - and take a quick look at the state's seafood marketing budget.

The total run to Bristol Bay as of Wednesday: 3.6 million fish. Wednesday's catch was 336,000, bringing the season total to 2.5 million, and the Nushagak still makes up the largest chunk of that with 223,000 fish counted yesterday for a total of 1.4 million in the Nushagak.

Tonight we hear the belugas and test nets are turning up more fish in the Naknek-Kvichak District, and Area Management Biologist Travis Elison is opening the district to set-netters tomorrow with an eye on the storm that could blow in even more. Plus, we hear from some set-netters around the bay, check on the state's seafood marketing budget, and learn about a different sort of summer school at Ekuk.

Catch KDLG's Bristol Bay Fisheries Report at 6:30, 10, and 2 a.m., and at 1:30 p.m. on the weekends.
