An angler fillets his sockeye salmon caught on the Kenai River near the confluence with the Russian River on Sunday near Cooper Landing. Sunday was the first open day for the popular Russian River sockeye sportfishery, and by midmorning, anglers were packing up with their limits and heading home while many others were landing some of the bright fish, some of the first sockeye of the season on the Kenai Peninsula. As of Saturday, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s weir on Lower Russian Lake had counted 1,027 fish, more than triple the count of 274 on the same day in 2016.
