Earthquake Damage to Eagle Rock Boat Launch on the Kenai River
Eagle Rock Boat Launch is a popular boating access point on the lower Kenai. The road access to the boat launch was damaged, as a retaining wall collapsed from the earthquake activity.
Road repairs will be necessary prior to reopening for next season. At this time Alaska State Parks does not have other reports of earthquake damage to park units on the Kenai Peninsula.
A veteran of the department with service as the Director of the Division of Wildlife Conservation, Doug Vincent-Lang was selected as the acting commissioner of ADFG by Alaska new Governor Mike Dunleavy. In Alaska the Joint Boards of Fish and Game review applications for ADFG Commissioner and send a list of approved candidates to the Governor for final selection and then approval by the Legislature.
Preliminary results from ADFG’s Bristol Bay King Salmon Catch and Release study presented at the BOF meeting in Dillingham.
For 317 tags deployed in 2017 and 2018, average mortality was less than 7.0 percent. This is in line with earlier Kenai River King Salmon C&R mortality rates in the early 1990s, and other catch and release mortality studies of fish elsewhere.
ADFG plans to count Kasilof River late-run king salmon on track with new ARIS sonar counter being deployed.
The ARIS sonar allows counts based on length of salmon, and there is a clear break between size of king salmon with that of sockeye and silvers. Data is from the Kasilof River.
The new capacity to count Kasilof River late-run king salmon will allow for the creation of an escapement goal, management plan and monitoring.
