At 12:01 a.m. on June 1, sections of the Kuskokwim River, along with certain tributaries, have closed to gillnets to allow the initial push of king salmon to reach the headwaters. Alaska Department of Fish and Game Kuskokwim Fisheries Biologist Ben Gray and Alaska State Wildlife Trooper Walter Blajeski join KYUK to outline these regulations.
