CONSERVATION: On Monday, I attended a press conference that included a presentation by Ricky Gease, executive director of the Kenai River Sportfishing Association. I have never fished the Kenai, but it is naturally a dream to one day get there–actually, to get to Alaska, period. I’m obviousy not alone, based on the millions of anlger hours logged on the river each year. The problem is, according to Gease, that those anglers who flock to the Kenai are “loving it to death.” Like Trout Unlimited, one of the goals of the KRSA is habitat restoration, specifically preventing erosion of the river’s banks due to overfishing. They also participate in fisheries management.
