The bag and possession limit for sockeye salmon in the Saltery Cove drainage is increased to 10 fish beginning 12:01 a.m., Wednesday, July 6 for the remainder of the season.
The escapement goal for sockeye salmon into the Saltery Cove drainage is 15,000 to 35,000 fish. As of July 4, the Saltery Creek weir count was 12,537 sockeye salmon. Based on historical run timing, the department is projecting the escapement goal will be exceeded.
Anglers are reminded that of the 10 fish limit, no more than five per day and in possession may be pink and chum salmon, and two per day and in possession may be coho salmon.
