The Alaska Department of Fish & Game, including federal agencies and nongovernmental organizations, operate weirs, towers, and sonar units on a multitude of waters around the state to count salmon and other migrating species. The inseason and historical data collected from these enumerations are frequently used for a variety of department management objectives but are just as valuable to anglers in determining how their local fisheries are progressing through the season in order to more efficiently target certain species.
Below is a listing of main areas and the roadside waters that currently have fish enumeration projects set up. Click on drainage and species of interest highlighted in blue to directly link with ADF&G’s official website for daily and seasonal counts.
