Description:

The Kasilof River sockeye salmon sonar project is located approximately 8 river miles upstream from the river mouth, just upstream of the Sterling Highway bridge. Sockeye salmon travel time to this site from Cook Inlet ranges from approximately 12-hours to 36-hours. The optimal escapement goal is 160,000 - 390,000 sockeye salmon.

Beginning in 2011, ADF&G will be counting escapement at in the Kasilof River using DIDSON rather than the old Bendix sonar. To provide for comparison of counts among years, all historical escapement counts in this database have been converted from Bendix to DIDSON-equivalent units.

Telephone counts are available at 907 262-9097.

More information about the sonar is located Kasilof River sonar/weir site external link.
