Jun 30, 2020

    On Thursday, Alaska Wildlife Troopers cited a 25-year-old Homer man with 18 counts of sports fishing violations on the Anchor River, which is closed by emergency order through July 15 due to low king salmon returns.

    According to a trooper dispatch, Afanasy E. Basargin had illegally caught and retained 21 king salmon from the north fork of the Anchor River earlier in this month.
