All is quiet on the beaches of Cohoe this July. An eerie silence has taken over what normally is tuned out by the bustling of clanking boat trailers, unmuffled beach trucks and outboards hitting the water.

She died after spending a week in the unchecked trap, according to Park biologist Tom Meier. Then her body was scavenged by a wolverine. The demise of the only reproducing female of the Grant Creek Pack was a horrific but fitting tribute to the Board of Game that signed her death warrant. Had the De...

Managing king salmon stocks on the Kenai River is not a job for the faint hearted. From 1980 to 1990 our Kenai River king runs were much more predictable than today. The main reason these runs were more predictable then is because there were less humans attempting to intercept them back then. King s...
