Copper River sockeye numbers continue to slide

by Tony Gorman

The Copper River sockeye run is slowing down.  On Wednesday, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game reported an 88,000 catch at the close of the last opener.  That's a 4,800 drop from last week.

King numbers are also dropped after the opener.  ADF&G says 1,800 were caught during the 36-hour period.  That's 5,000 less from last week.  No numbers were reported for chums.

The next period opens Thursday at 7 AM.
