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 escapement goal is 22,000 – 42,000 Early-Run sockeye salmon and 30,000 – 110,000 Late-Run sockeye salmon.
