18-thousand sockeye projected at Redoubt

SITKA, ALASKA The sockeye return at Redoubt Lake is running below long-term averages so far this year, but managers are still projecting a significant return.
According to the Alaska Department of Fish & Game, almost 57-hundred sockeye have passed through the weir at Redoubt Lake as of Sunday (7-19-09). That could mean a total escapement of 18-thousand fish by the end of the season.
