Thursday's 12-hour season opener at the Copper River produced a modest catch of 16,100 sockeye salmon and 1,400 Chinook, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game reports.
"This compares to an anticipated harvest of 37,200 sockeye salmon for this period," the department said.
The Copper River District will open again at 7 a.m. Monday for a 24-hour period. More details here.
