Deep Inlet is open to Seiners on Wednesday, August 30th. Troll is open the day before Tuesday, August 29th. Please be courteous and respectful of their opportunity on Tuesday to make their intended drags. Troll is open each Saturday after this first week, so they are always fishing the day before the seine opening on Sunday. Please keep this in mind each week, and allow them to fish unobstructed. Thanks to NSRAA for this opportunity for all gears. Good fishing!

This just in from Troy after flying yesterday
It looked like the run was going to develop well early on but didn’t. Water levels are low in a lot of the non-mainland smaller systems that don’t have a glacier or snow field above them. Not crisis mode yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised to start seeing some die-offs where fish are already up the system. As a result of concerns for escapement in just pure number fish, is the reason why I closed all of upper 9-B and portions of District 10. Escapement is lagging and downright poor in a few systems. D10 and upper 9-B are at the tail end of the Chatham Strait corridor and returns to these areas have taken a hit by the harvest in northern Chatham and Icy Straits.

Weather the weather
Hopefully we won’t lose a significant number of the early escaped fish in systems that are prone to drying up. I’ll try to keep you updated as information is provided. Love the sun, but love the fish more!! I don’t see any forecast of rain until Saturday.
