"Alaska: Salmon 'In The Trees.' But In The Rivers? 'Not As Much'"

"SOLDOTNA, Alaska — A dozen sockeye salmon thrashed against the rope clipped to Darrel Williams' coveralls last month as he waded along a 60-foot fishing net in the Kenai River.

The silver and red fish were the last catch of the final day of a dismal salmon season.

Williams was fishing for more than 100 members of the Ninilchik Village Tribe who are elderly, disabled or otherwise unable to fish for themselves. The early end to fishing this year means 25 families must do without salmon they were expecting to eat in winter."
