Salmon notes

Here are a few observations from the young salmon season thus far.

• The statewide catch is 49 million fish, with sockeye accounting for most of the catch.

• Preseason predictions of a huge catch at Bristol Bay are proving accurate. Through Thursday, the tally stood at more than 35 million sockeye. That's an awesome haul, with lots of fishing still to come.

• The Copper River sockeye catch stands at 528,790 fish, against the preseason forecast of 716,000.
