For about ten years, the Kodiak Regional Aquaculture Association and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game have worked together to provide greater access to king salmon fishing on Kodiak through the road system king salmon enhancement project.
Only the Karluk and Ayakulik Rivers have native king salmon stocks on Kodiak, both of which are fairly inaccessible to the average person. So, to help keep king salmon a feasible sport fish, the two entities annually release thousands of Chinook smolt into freshwaters along the road system. But a substantial amount of work is done before those salmon are even born.
