The sport fishing bag and possession limit for sockeye salmon in the Karluk River drainage has been increased to 10 fish per day; 10 in possession. This emergency order will be in effect beginning 12:01a.m., Friday, June 13.
The escapement goal for early run sockeye salmon into the Karluk River drainage is 110,000 to 250,000 fish. As of June 9, the early run weir count is 117,397 sockeye salmon. Based on historical run timing, the department expects the final weir count to exceed the escapement goal for this stock. To provide additional sport harvest opportunity, the bag and possession limit for sockeye salmon 20 inches or greater in length in the Karluk River drainage is increased to 10 fish.
