Saturday's catch was 1.3 million sockeye. Is the effort slowing before the run? The BBFR coming to your Fishtival in Naknek tonight!
The Fisheries Report comes to you from Naknek tonight, where the KDLG crew found good music, good fun, and high spirits as more and more skippers trickle into the boat yards. The catch from Saturday in Bristol Bay was 1.28 million sockeye, and 709,000 reds were counted as escapement. That brings the total catch this season to 31.6 million, and the total run is now 45 million sockeye. Will the effort drop off before the run slows?
