Portion of Kenai River to reopen to boating

The state Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation announced Wednesday evening that it will reopen the section of the Kenai River Special Management Area from Skilak Lake downstream to the confluence of the Upper Killey River to boating today.

All other waters within the KRSMA, with the exception of Kenai and Skilak lakes, remain closed to boat traffic due to flooding.

Boaters seeking to access this area will need to launch within the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge.

For more information, please contact the Kenai/Prince William Sound Area state park office at 907-262-5581.
