Catch-and-release stand supported

Posted: April 11, 2013 - 8:53am

I applaud Greg Brush at EZ Limit Guide Service, for the stand he has taking on releasing client caught king salmon. Greg is certainly one of our premier guides. If he can go to catch-and-release only, then perhaps others will follow his lead.

When my summer guests arrive this year, I will send them to Greg if they decide to go out on the river. That is if he has any openings.

Way to go Greg.

Save the Chinook Salmon

I'm glad to see that some step are being taken to save the chinook run, but catch and release is not the answer about 40% of those will still die and not make it to the spawning grounds. I believe that ADF&G should close the river to all Chinook fishing for the next 5yrs and let the Brute stock build back up. If we don't do something now in few years there will be no fish for anybody.

I totally agree! The Guides have decimated the river of Kings. Locals don't fish the dang things anyway, due to the amount of boats and poles in the river (not worth the headache), so it is not big deal to us to not fish Kings!

By shutting the Kenai down, you will re-populate the species and run off the outside resident trash guides...to say nothing about controlling the river populations of lines in the water....

I say "SHUT IT DOWN"! Then, once the King escapement has reclaimed the sustainable headcount, allow VERY FEW residential established Guides to conduct their business.

It is really that simple folks....

Perhaps the better route to take, is tell your summer guests

"The Kenai River has been wiped out of it's King Salmon population due to Guides, Overfishing and Commercialization of the Kenai River. Your best bet is to either save your money and find somewhere else to vacation, or go ahead and waste your money coming to Alaska where you are not welcome to fish!"
