Droves of reds return

Dipnetters of all ages and ability take advantage of the fast-paced harvest during the outgoing tide at the mouth of the Kasilof River Thursday night during biggest return-day so far. One netter brought in three double-fish nets in a row at the height of the action. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game reported that 22,404 sockeye passed up the Kasilof River bringing the 2013 total, so far, to more than 141,000 fish – nearly three times the number by the same day last year. According to ADF&G, it's the largest fish passage by June 27 ever.
