FAIRBANKS (AP) — This year's king salmon run on the Yukon River is on track to be the second- or third-worst ever recorded.

Just over 90,000 kings were counted as they swam past the Pilot Station sonar site near the mouth of the Yukon River this summer, the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported. The run has thus far been similar to 2015, the second-worst year for king salmon ever recorded, after 2013.

The migration from the Bering Sea to the mouth of the river is usually more than halfway over by this point in the summer.
