The Alaska Department of Fish and Game is continuing to ease restrictions on coho salmon fishing in the Lower Valley. On Friday, Fish and Game issued an order saying that the daily bag limit on silvers caught on the Little Susitna between the mouth and Parks Highway bridge is increasing from two fish to three. Fish and Game says that the escapement goal for the Little Su has almost been met, with 10,048 passing the counting weir. The new regulations take/took effect on Saturday. A complete list of current regulations can be found at the Department of Fish and Game’s website.
