Area management biologist Robert Begich wrote in an email that there were fewer than 100 boats with actively fishing anglers on them in the entire area open to king salmon fishing on the Kenai River. The first day of the late run of Kenai River king salmon opened to no-bait and anglers were restricted to fishing downstream of the mouth of Slikok Creek to the mouth of the Kenai River.
