Gillnet fishing in Cordova in the Copper River and Prince William Sound is "definitely the worst" he's ever seen a Cordova fisherman, Mike Mickelson, told KTUU June 10th, 2020. He said that escapement has led to a closed Copper River fishery.

The Department of Fish & Game estimated that this year's gillnet season would bring in around 70,000 sockeyes and almost 6,000 chinooks. In 2019. around 1.25 million sockeye came in.

Low prices, fewer fish, and pandemic related health and timing problems are causing a confluence of issues that are making the salmon season difficult.
