The State of Alaska's Department of Fish & Game has announced that the sonar counts for sockeyes in the Copper River are not looking good. 

So far, only around half as many fish have returned to the river to date as expected.  The state said it wanted a goal of almost 150,000 fish passing the sensors by now, but at midweek only 63,585 had been counted.

This is the 13th lowest run on record.
