What about Kasilof kings?

I’m sitting here in Ninilchik again this year looking out my cabin window and watching sockeye salmon jumping two at a time on their way to the Kasilof special harvest district while the traditional east side setnetter is shut down.

One of the giant problems I have with this new era of management is the question of what we are possibly doing to the Kasilof River king salmon run. Evidently the King Conservation Alliance couldn’t give a rat’s tail about this species. The biologist don’t even count the kings headed up the Kasilof and certainly 90-plus percent of them are getting cut off by the special harvest district.  

Maybe we should all take a minute to review Sir Isaac Newton’s third law that simply states “for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.”
