Letter: King fishing has suffered decline

January 10, 2014 

I’m a 15-year resident and property owner with access to the Kenai River. I settled here in 1999 when king fishing was good. The last three to four years it has been horrible, which is very sad to see.

I hope to see a complete shutdown of the obvious king catchers for the next five years:

a.) Sportfishing from Soldotna bridge to the mouth. Restricted motorboat activity during spawning in the same area.

b.) East side set nets (ESSN). After five years carefully analyze the scientific progress (results).
