100629.buskin-subsistence.jpg            The waters outside the mouth of the Buskin River will re-open to subsistence red salmon fishing tonight after midnight. Subsistence fishing was closed there earlier this month due to low returns, but now enough reds have crossed the weir to prompt the joint managers to open it back up.

            The Alaska Department of Fish and Game and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service jointly manage the fishery.

            As of Sunday, 6,006 sockeye were counted at the Buskin River weir, which gives managers some confidence the lower end of the escapement goal of 8,000 will be reached. The desired escapement by this date is from about 5,900 to 9,600 reds.

            The fishery will open at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday in an area inside lines drawn from Gibson Cove to the south end of Near Island and to Cliff Point.

            Fishermen are reminded that they should consult both State of Alaska fishing regulations and the Federal Subsistence Management regulations for waters subject to ANILCA Title 8 before fishing.

            After simmering for several months and being the subject of long and sometimes philosophical discussions over the definition of what "sick" means, the Kodiak City Council has passed several changes to its personnel manual.

            City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski said the amendments were done with input from her department heads and employee groups, and cover three main areas.

            Five Alutiiq songs that were lost to local Natives during the Russian era have returned to Kodiak thanks to Tlingit tribal elders in Sitka.

            The five songs were part of an exchange of information and experiences between elders and children at the Alutiiq-Tlingit Sharing of Cultures event held last week in Sitka.

            The Alutiiq Museum's Sven Haakanson was one of those attending the event. He says the songs originally travelled to Sitka with Native men who were forced to the Sitka area to hunt sea otters by early Russian settlers who held their wives and children captive.

            In what could be a replication of uncontrolled acceleration problems with Toyota cars elsewhere in the United States, a Toyota Highlander Hybrid jumped the curb at the Kodiak Spit and plunged into about 20-feet of water in the Near Island Channel on Saturday afternoon. Witnesses said it appeared the driver was unable to stop the mid-sized SUV before it went over the embankment.

            The driver was identified by Kodiak Police as 29-year-old Michelle Roberts. Chief T.C. Kamai said she apparently escaped through an open window before the car sank, and Harbormaster Marty Owen said a passing boat from Camp Woody picked her up. Kamai said she was taken to Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center and treated for minor injuries including possible hypothermia.

            Kamai said no citations were issued in the incident and the investigation into the cause is continuing.

            The Ayakulik River closed to king salmon sports fishing on Saturday, joining the Karluk River, which was closed to kings in March.

But Fish and Game biologists say there are other places still open for the popular fish-and the reds will soon be coming in south of town.

Suzanne Schmidt is the Assistant Area Management Biologist for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in Kodiak. She explains the Ayakulik closure.
