No Nushagak River King Salmon Forecast from ADF&G

Oct 23, 2013

In recent years the Alaska Department of Fish and Game has had trouble accurately predicting the size of the king salmon run to the Nushagak River, which is one of the largest king runs in the State. As a result, for the 3rd year in a row, Fish and Game is not putting out a preseason forecast for Nushagak River kings. KDLG’s Mike Mason has the details.
