Area M Opener: 36-Hour Opener – Dolgi Subsection Re-Opened

Posted on: July 25th, 2018 | Author: General Manager | Filed under: Aleutians East Borough, Community Window, Fisheries News, KSDP Programs

The Department of Fish and Game is re-opening the Dolgi Subsection of Area M for the upcoming 36-hour salmon opener.

On July 17, 2018 the Board of Fish adopted language specifying this region to remain closed until August 8, 2018 unless Chignik Late Run stock were coming in at healthy levels. This decision was based on the current Chignik late run, which is meeting its necessary escapement objectives.

Dolgoi Island Area Restricted for Upcoming Opener – July 2018

Posted on: July 12th, 2018 | Author: General Manager | Filed under: Aleutians East Borough, Community Window, Fisheries News, KSDP Programs

Fishing for Area M will be open as scheduled for 36-hours beginning 6:00am, July 14th and closing at 6:00pm July 15th.

The important note is that certain sections of the Dolgoi Island Management Area will be restricted.

Regulations call for this to occur when and estimated harvest of 180,000 fish has occurred. So far less than 20,000 fish have been harvested in the 2018 salmon season.

See the announcement from the Dept. of Fish and Game below.
