The Kenai/Soldotna Fish and Game Advisory Committee will hold a public meeting Monday to discuss proposals to the Board of Game impacting the Southcentral region and to the Board of Fish impacting the state. The meeting will be held at the Cook Inlet Aquaculture Building at 6 p.m.
There are 67 proposals to the Board of Game impacting the Southcentral region and 19 proposals to the Board of Fish impacting the state.
A wide range of proposals to the Board of Game are up for discussion, including restrictions for ATV use during moose hunts, multiple proposed solutions to declining Dall sheep populations around Homer, multiple proposed changes to moose and bear seasons, changes to areas available for hunting and trapping, and many more.
Some highlights of the Board of Fish proposals include prohibiting footgear with absorbent fiber material on the soles, closing commercial fishing for any species within a quarter mile of an area closed to sport fishing of that species, amendments to statutes and regulations and an extension of emergency order authorities to allow restrictions of sport fisheries in contaminated waters.
