On the evening of May 9th the Kenai-Soldotna Fish and Game Advisory Committee had an emergency meeting with approximately 70 people in attendance. The participants were comprised of a diverse group of fishing guides, commercial fisherman, sport fisherman, and business owners. The topic of the evening was an emergency order that was arbitrarily and capriciously issued by ADF&G on the afternoon of May 9th. This order changed the management plan for the early run of chinook salmon on the Kenai River to catch and release only.
