The year 2010 was a good year on the Kenai River for sockeye salmon fishing. And as usually the run started its normal trend of tapering off near the end of July. Then on the horizon appeared a new slug of sockeye salmon heading up Cook Inlet and destined to enter the Kenai River. With escapement goals already met, ADFG issued an immediate Emergency Order raising the daily sport fish sockeye limit to SIX reds per day. The BIG numbers hit the river on August 3rd, 2010 and the river came alive with fish AND ANGLERS. Everyone slayed the fish with most everyone that day getting their six reds before calling it quits. Then it was over and back to "normal." But what a day!
