The two districts were also open for four days the week of Sept. 21-27. Ten boats fished in District 8 near Petersburg and 47 boats fished in District 6 near Prince of Wales Island. Boats in District 8 averaged 306 fish during that period and boats in District 6 averaged 384 fish. Most of them were Coho in both districts with a few Chum and Chinook making up the rest.
The new opening for the drift gillnet fishery starts Sunday, Sept. 28 at 12:01 p.m. and will close Thursday, Oct. 2 at noon.
There are some restrictions for where fishermen are allowed to fish.
