Red salmon hit subsistence nets hard in KoliganekĀ this summer, but so far they are pulling in very few king salmon.

Wildlife troopers in Unalakleet cited a man Tuesday for unlawful subsistence fishing. On July 2nd, 39 year old Norman P. Haugen allegedly caught 25 king salmon illegally, by using gillnets sized at 8 inches and 7 and Ā¾ of an inch, when the mesh size was restricted to 4 and a half inches. He faces two counts of illegal subsistence fishing by unlawful methods and means and was ordered to appear in Unalakleet court. Troopers seized the 25 king salmon, along with 10 chums and 1 pink as evidence.
