Kuskokwim salmon fishing begins Sunday

 In the first targeted salmon fishing of the year on the Kuskokwim River, state and federal fish managers are allowing limited subsistence fishing for king and chum salmon starting at noon Sunday, though different rules will apply on different stretches of river.


For federal waters within the Yukon-Delta National Wildlife Refuge — from the river mouth to Aniak — the opening ends Sunday at midnight. Above the Johnson River, nets can’t be longer than 150 feet. Below it, nets can be 300 feet long. Only federally qualified users, who have been in the region for at least a year, can fish in federal waters.
