  • About the Edition

    Direct expansion creel surveys were conducted from 1 May through 31 July at three separate public beaches (Deep Creek marine, Whiskey Gulch, and Anchor Point) that provide access to the Central Cook Inlet marine recreational fishery. Boat parties that had completed fishing were interviewed as they exited the fishery; data recorded were trip type (guided/private), number of rods fished, number of chinook salmon Oncorhynchus tshawytscha kept and/or released, and the number of Pacific halibut Hippoglossus stenolepis kept and/or released. No biological samples were collected. In addition, total harvest and effort information was collected from fishing lodges that operate from a private, closed access beach. Two distinct runs of chinook salmon occur in this fishery. The early run fishery is a mixed stock fishery that likely harvests chinook returning to streams in several drainages of Cook Inlet. The late run fishery is presumed to harvest primarily late run Kenai River fish, and to a lesser extent late run Kasilof River fish, the only late run stocks known in Cook Inlet. For 1994, the early run was considered to be from 1 May-22 June, and the late run from 23 June-31 July. The estimated harvest of chinook salmon was 7,446 (SE = 300), with 5,577 (SE = 237) harvested during the early run, and 1,869 (SE = 124) during the late run. An estimated 63,831 (SE = 2,229) Pacific halibut were harvested. Total effort for the fishery during this time frame, for all species combined, was 62,292 angler days (SE = 1,796). Guided anglers accounted for 37% of the fishing effort, 49% of the chinook salmon harvest, and 54% of the Pacific halibut harvest. Anglers released 10% of the chinook salmon landed and 42% of the halibut landed. Although some harvest and effort occurs in this fishery outside of our sampling time frame, as well as from two other access sites, the additional harvest of chinook salmon is considered negligible. However, a considerable amount of fishing effort for Pacific halibut does occur after 31 July.
