Follow Along with the Bristol Bay salmon season

Looking to follow along with the Bristol Bay Salmon Season? You can tune in to KDLG from home to hear the Bristol Bay Fisheries Report. These well-researched updates recap what’s new with the season just about every day during the Bristol Bay summer. The fleet will rely on the station’s journalists and deejays to paint the full picture of where the fish are, how much is being caught in which river, and what the Alaska Department of Fish & Game biologists are saying about the season.

It wasn’t until recent seasons that cell phones worked in Bristol Bay. Previously, radio (both public and VHF) was one of the only ways folks communicated in this remote area, and you might hear messages to or from home on Open Line, a show on this local station when anyone can call in to speak to other listeners.

Hi, this is so & so, if so & so hears this, please call me 907 843 … OR
