National Fisherman

For the second consecutive week, it’s “wait and see” for fishermen who are eager or anxious for the next commercial opening on Kuskokwim River.
 
The prospect of commercial fishing again dominated the discussion at a Wednesday meeting of the Kuskokwim River Salmon Management Working Group. There haven’t been any openings since July 21st, and that’s the way many upriver subsistence fishermen with empty freezers wanted it to stay.
 
Alice Kameroff from Lower Kalskag responded to reports from lower river fishermen bringing in plenty of cohos and says she hasn’t put any silvers up yet.
 
“I wish they wouldn’t open commercial and let the silvers reach up here so we can put a lot of fish away too,” said Kameroff.
