Here's your Copper River forecast

The state has released its 2013 salmon forecast for the famed Copper River.

Biologists project a commercial catch of 1.3 million sockeye and 19,800 Chinook.

Last season, fishermen ended up with a dandy 1.86 million sockeye and a scant 11,617 Chinook.

The forecast also includes numbers for Prince William Sound.

It's hard to get excited about the ADF&G salmon forecasts because they let Alaska down with their management of the King Salmon.
