Red salmon carcasses pile up in the Kenai River behind an angler cleaning his catch several summers ago. Biologists are blaming the fish waste for conflicts between people and bears in the surrounding area. According to Bobbi Jo Skibo,Russian River interagency coordinator for the U.S. Forest Service in Moose Pass, state and federal agency managers who oversee the confluence area are considering asking anglers to clean their catch offsite starting this season.
