Egegik’s run is slowly picking up steam, though effort is a little lower than normal. The Nushagak is coming along, but things are a bit languid there as well. The daily run summaries from Fish and Game are up and running, and we have the first stock composition numbers from Port Moller.
The Nushagak has apportionment, and its run is picking up. The Wood River run is coming along. Down on the Alaska Peninsula, the early Chignik run is off to an extremely low start for the third June in a row.
Nushagak saw a big jump in its daily counts yesterday. The Wood River and Egegik towers started counting today. Kings are just starting to hit Dillingham beaches. Port Moller Test Fishery wasn’t out on the water, but they hope to get enough fish today to start running stock compositions.
Activity is a bit slow across the bay, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to talk about. The Nushagak sonar crew started counting June 6, while the east side is still waiting for the run to pick up as counting towers and test fisheries start up this week.
