Baiting early run interest
On Saturday, fishing for early run king salmon got a little easier. Due to adequate fish runs and low harvest levels, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game issued an emergency order Friday allowing fishermen to use bait from the mouth of the river to 100 yards downstream of the confluence of the Moose and Kenai Rivers. The order went into effect at 12:01 a.m. Saturday.
