The mood was happy, even relieved, as the Kuskokwim Salmon Management Working Group met this week. The group of river users advise the state on managing the fishery. Last week, subsistence fishermen reported empty or partially-filled fish racks. The next day, the state opened the main stem of the river to gillnets full-time. A week later, on July 13, some fishermen reported nearly full racks for the season.
