Regulation reminders:


Almost a thousand sockeye salmon are swimming through the weir at McLees Lake each day — enough that the Alaska Department of Fish and Game says the area has met its goal for minimum escapement.

That's good news, because the run started slowly.

Lisa Fox is the area management biologist for the South Alaska Peninsula and Aleutian Islands. She said just five reds passed through on the first day of the run in early June.
