Description: The weir is located at the outlet of Lower Russian Lake, about 78 miles from the mouth of the Kenai River. It takes approximately 7 to 10 days for sockeye salmon to travel from the lower Kenai River to the weir depending on water levels. Travel times are estimates and can vary significantly from this depending on conditions. The current weir-based early-run sockeye salmon sustainable escapement goal (SEG) is 22,000-44,000 and was adopted in 2011. The late-run sockeye salmon stock was managed to achieve an SEG of 30,000-110,000 (years 2005-2019). In 2020, the new SEG range was adopted for the late-run Russian River sockeye salmon and is now 44,000-85,000.

Biological Escapement Goal for Sockeye - Early Run: 22,000 - 42,000 (Graphed above)
Sustainable Escapement Goal for Sockeye - Late Run: 44,000 - 85,000
