I am the owner and guide of Alaska Kenai Fishing for Fun out of Cooper Landing. When I’m not on the Kenai or Kasilof, I’m in Anchorage teaching middle school students math. I am extremely concerned about the low returning king numbers in Cook Inlet. As a new father, I want my child to be able to benefit from such an amazing fishery as I have.
Later this week, the Alaska Board of Fisheries will meet to discuss conservation measures for our Kenai king salmon. I hope readers of this newspaper will contact the board and ask them to take action to preserve one of our most amazing fish.
