There’s a commercial fish opening on the Lower Yukon River Monday afternoon.
The six-hour opening begins at 3 p.m. and closes at 9 p.m. on Monday, July 24 in District One of the Yukon River. The opening includes the set-net only area. Gillnets with 6 inch or smaller mesh are authorized for the commercial opening.
Kings caught in the commercial opening cannot be sold. They must be either released live into the river or kept for subsistence use. Those kings kept for subsistence use must be recorded on the fish tickets.
