A creel survey was conducted from 1 August through 28 September 1992 on the downstream section of the Kenai River (Soldotna Bridge to Cook Inlet) to estimate recreational angler effort and catch and harvest of coho salmon Oncorhynchus kisutch. During this time period, the recreational fishery is primarily directed toward coho salmon. Results from this survey showed recreational anglers exerted an estimated 176,554 angler-hours to harvest an estimated 20,817 coho salmon during the early (August) coho salmon run and an estimated 65,520 angler-hours to harvest an estimated 12,794 coho salmon during the late (September) coho salmon run. The total catch exceeded the harvest for both runs by less than 1%, as most fish caught were retained. More effort (73%) was expended by anglers during the early run than the late run. For both early and late runs more angler effort occurred on weekdays (57% and 61%, respectively) and during morning periods (57% and 75%, respectively). Over both runs, unguided boat anglers exerted 55% of the total effort and harvested 47% of the coho salmon while guided boat anglers exerted 29% of the effort and harvested 45% of the coho salmon. Only 16% of effort and 8% of harvest was attributed to shore anglers. The predominant age class in each run was age 2.1 (73% of the early run and 91% of the late run). Late-run coho salmon tended to have larger mean lengths than early-run coho salmon. More males than females were harvested during both early and late runs (59% and 55%, respectively).
