The size of Kenai Kings have

The size of Kenai Kings have been getting smaller and the numbers has been getting fewer each year for several years,. I was once told by a fish biologist that they could kill 40 hens a year and produce "Wall to Wall" kings in the river, but in his opinion the public wouldn't stand for it. If we released the returning wild fish, and kept only the hatchery fish, I can only see the up side. Wouldn't it be fun to catch a "Kenai King" again?

No to stocking, it's a waste

No to stocking, it's a waste of money. ADF&G just closed Ship Creek to king fishing. This is an enhanced fishery, folks. They can put in as many king fingerlings as they want but something in the ocean is preventing them from coming back. Look in your backyard. The Kasilof is another example of low returns on enhancement.
