Thursday's season opener at the Copper River produced an estimated catch of 155,000 sockeye salmon and 1,100 Chinook, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game reports.
"This compares to an anticipated harvest of 32,000 sockeye and 2,100 Chinook salmon for this period," the department says.
Deckboss hasn't heard a thing about prices. Anybody?
The Copper River District will open at 7 a.m. Monday for another 12-hour period.
