he George River is a tributary of the Kuskokwim River, and produces chinook salmon Oncorhynchus tshawytscha, chum salmon O. keta, and coho salmon O. kisutch that contribute to intensive subsistence and commercial salmon fisheries downstream of its confluence. The George River weir is one of several projects operated in the Kuskokwim area that form an integrated geographic array of escapement monitoring projects. Collectively, and in accordance with the State of Alaska Sustainable Fishery Policy (5 AAC 39.222), this array of projects is a tool to assure appropriate geographic and temporal distribution of spawning salmon, and provide a means to assess trends in escapement that should be monitored and considered in...

Fish inventory and anadromous cataloging in the Susitna River, Matanuska River, and Knik River basins, 2003 and 2011
During August 2003 and July-August 2011, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Division of Sport Fish conducted an inventory of stream fish assemblages and associated aquatic and riparian habitats in a 53,445 square-km. study area comprising the upper Cook Inlet basin bounded by the Alaska Range to the north and west, the Chugach Mountains to the south, and the Copper Riverbasin to the east. (In addition to the Susitna River watershed, this included Maguire Creek and the watersheds of the Matanuska and Knik rivers.) Some 357 study sites were visited in streams ranging in size from wadeable headwaters to the mainstem Susitna River. At each site, data was collected describing site location, aquatic habitat, riparian...
Run forecasts and harvest projections for 2006 Alaska salmon fisheries and review of the 2005 season
Information specific to recreational fisheries in the Yukon Management Area in 2011 and preliminary information for 2012 is presented. Estimates of fishing effort, total catch, and harvest is summarized through the 2011 season. This information is provided to the Alaska Board of Fisheries (board), as well as to the general public and interested parties. Summaries of major fisheries within the area are detailed, including descriptions of the performance of these fisheries, regulatory actions by board, social and biological issues, and descriptions of ongoing research and management activities. The remote waters of the Yukon Management Area supported approximately 10,000 angler days of sport fishing in 2011....
Stocked rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss populations in 31 lakes in the Tanana River and Upper Copper River drainages were evaluated during 2008–2010. We used two sampling schemes to provide managers with information about population length-age structure to determine if stocked fisheries were meeting management criteria and to provide basic population information to evaluate the presence of stocked fish in their expected size range. We also visually examined all captured fish for external signs of disease, parasites, and body condition (robust or thin). We compared populations in 19 lakes to management criteria for mean length and relative abundance for predetermined length categories and expected age cohorts....
