There will be herring fishing today near the south end of Sitka’s road system, ADF&G has announced. Fish & Game biologist Dave Gordon said the fishery will aim to harvest about 3,000 tons. more
The Alaska Department of Fish & Game said in their 11 a.m. update that a significant volume of herring has moved into the closure area, a stretch of water near town that is out of bounds to the commercial fishery, to protect subsistence use. Fish & Game biologist Dave Gordon said he wasn’t discounting the possibility of a fishery south of town, where large schools of fish were found yesterday, but he wanted to give it more time “to find a body of fish that might provide a better fishery for everybody.” more
The Alaska Department of Fish & Game has announced that there will be a second opening in the Sitka Sound sac roe herring fishery, around 1:30 p.m. today (Sun 3-23-14). Sunday’s fishery will take place within the same boundaries as Thursday’s season opener, in Starrigavan and Katlian bays. more
The Department of Fish and Game announced at 11 a.m. (Sat 3-22-14) that there will be no fishing today in the Sitka Sound herring fishery, as processors continue to work through Thursday’s catch.

If a fishery does occur on Sunday it will likely be smaller in size than Thursday’s 5,500 ton catch, said Fish & Game biologist Dave Gordon.

Linemen cleared the toppled tree from the Green Lake transmission line, and had all of Sitka re-powered sometime after 10 PM last night.
Raven Radio has had four General Managers in 30 years. Rich McClear was the very first and recently sat at his old desk. He wasn’t just enjoying the view of Sitka Channel though, he was editing a news story. Rich has been volunteering in the News Department for the last several weeks, filing stories from the ATIA conference among others. See his latest story on how the Sawmill Creek Road project came to pass here. Thanks Rich! more
