Anchor River gets emergency closure

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game issued an emergency order Monday to close fishing at the Anchor River at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday until 11:59 p.m. June 30.

A Fish and Game press release states the river will be closed to sportfishing to protect king salmon returning to the river.

Fish and Game said it was unable to predict with certainty that the sustainable escapement goal of king salmon would be met for 2011.
