Description: The Sonar on the Copper River is located at the outlet of Miles Lake, about 70 miles from the Chitina dipnet fishery. It takes approximately 2 weeks for salmon to travel this distance, but this is highly variable depending on the water level. The water levels listed here are an indication of the general trends in the Copper River but may not be indicative of what is occurring at Chitina. The current escapement goal for Sockeye is 360,000 to 750,000.
More information about the sonar is located Copper River sonar/weir site external link.

Sustainable Escapement Goal for Sockeye in 2019: 360,000 - 750,000 (Graphed above)
