Another King Closure

More dissapointing news for fishermen


by Mike Ford

Alaska Fish and Game is closing all waters of the Tanana River Drainage to sport fishing for king salmon effective Monday May 12th at 12:01 a-m.

The closure prohibits all sport fishing for king salmon, including catch and release fishing. King salmon may not be retained or possessed.

King salmon incidentally caught while fishing for other species may not be removed from the water and must be released immediately.

The 2014 Yukon and Tanana rivers chinook salmon run is expected to be extremely poor.
