Tuesday on Alaska News Nightly:

In response to a federal lawsuit, the state says the Kuskokwim River isn’t public for the purposes of fisheries management. Subsistence users say commercial vessels are taking fish bound for their rivers. And meteorologists say wetter weather is helping with wildfires, but that could still change quickly.

Reports tonight from:

Dan Bross in Fairbanks
Olivia Ebertz in Bethel
Kirsten Dobroth in Kodiak
Sabine Poux in Kenai
Claire Stremple in Juneau
and Theo Greenly in Unalaska
