-Need to put an announcement on the air or online? Click here to find out how to do it. If you are with a group or organization please remember to designate one person to be the spokesperson to communicate agreed upon information for broadcast and on-line. We have had many instances where incorrect information has been announced due to many people calling with conflicting information.

Send a message for the WIRELESS to: wireless@kiyu.com

 

We ask that when you send announcements for the Yukon Wireless that you write the information in the body of the e-mail. You can send us a flier, which we can attach to the announcement. But we would rather you write out the who, what, when, where, etc of your announcement. Note that we may adjust your announcement for broadcast purposes. Also, please do not send your important announcements via Facebook.  Instead, e-mail it to wireless@kiyu.com to make sure we see them.

 

Many people still fax. While we accept faxes, we would prefer e-mail at wireless@kiyu.com as it allows us to have a better record of sender information and it makes transferring the information easier for our editors. If you do fax, you may want to call our office to make sure we received it.

  Fishing/Subsistence Information

 

Here is the latest Yukon River salmon update with information from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game:

UPDATED AUGUST 16

The first pulse of fall chum began entering the river in early August.   It contained around 100,000 fish when it passed the Pilot Station sonar.  The front end of the pulse should be reaching Galena in the next day or so, and then on to Tanana by early next week. 

A slightly smaller second pulse of fall chum, numbering around 90,000 fish at Pilot Station, began entering the river on August 8th.  Fish from this pulse should begin arriving at Kaltag on August 20, Galena on August 22, and Tanana on August 27.  A third pulse of fall chum appears to be entering the river now, but has not been measured at the Pilot Station sonar yet.


The Pilot Station sonar estimate for fall chum through August 15 is about 360,000 fish. Although passage is slightly below average, the 2018 fall chum salmon run is tracking within the preseason projection range.

125,000 fall chum have been taken in the lower river commercial fishery, in addition to nearly 13,000 coho.

Here are the fishing schedules:
