More limits placed on subsistence, sport fishing

Posted: Thursday, July 12, 2018 9:00 am

KODIAK — In an attempt to meet escapement goals, Pasagshak Bay and Saltery Cove have been closed for subsistence fishing for the remainder of the sockeye season. The Pasagshak River drainage (including Lake Rose Tead and its tributaries) has also been closed for sockeye sport fishing and a bag limit of two fish per day has been put in place at Saltery Cove drainage.

Earlier this week, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game announced that all the above restrictions will go into effect Thursday July 12. Both Pasagshak Bay and Saltery Cove will remain closed until Tuesday August 14, unless a future emergency order reopens the areas. ADF&G previously announced the closures of the Buskin River and Afognak Bay for subsistence fishing until August 14.
