Yukon River In-Season Updates

Yukon River Salmon In-Season Updates

The Yukon River Drainage Fisheries Association (YRDFA) coordinates in-season teleconferences for the Yukon River fisheries. Calls are open to the public and start at the beginning of June and run until September. The mission of the teleconference is to exchange information and facilitate dialogue between fishermen and managers and between different communities along the the Yukon River, including tributaries in Alaska and the Yukon.

All of the teleconferences are scheduled for 1:00 p.m. AK time and 2:00 p.m. YT time on Tuesdays throughout the summer and fall fishing seasons. The teleconferences are approximately one hour long.

This program is always looking for designated speakers to report on quality of the salmon, water levels and debris loads, harvest levels and levels of fishing activity. Contact the Yukon River Drainage Fisheries Association to become a designated speaker.
