The king salmon run is growing in the Kuskokwim River as the season advances. From Tuntutuliak to Akiak along the Kuskokwim mainstem, federal biologists estimate that about 8,650 salmon were harvested on the June 12 subsistence opening. Almost all the salmon were kings, about 8,040. The remainder were around 310 chum and 290 reds. Harvest estimates from the June 15 subsistence fishing opening will be released the following week.
