2020 Yukon River Salmon Summer Fishery Announcement #29 Subdistricts 5-A, 5-B, and 5-C Subsistence Fishing Schedule

Districts Affected: Upper Yukon Area

In order to limit drainage-wide subsistence harvests to levels of about half what they were last year, a conservative management approach is being taken. A single 24-hour fishing period in Subdistricts 5-A, 5-B, and 5-C is being cancelled on the middle part of the run, in order to allow fish to pass through to spawning grounds.
