    Default Last day for Charters, Aug 16....

    Fishing has been slow because of poor river conditions. We still couldn't get everyone out today that were in line and we already have a small line for Thursday. When the river stabilizes again fishing will be good. So, until that update use caution and bring patience. New charter open time of 5:45am. Charters close August 16th for the season. Update Thursday by 10AM

    and the weekly Chitina update Aug 1 on the Daily News Miner Fairbanks:

    Hope its not too crowded mid/late next week. Never thought there'd be big lines in Aug.
    Don't want to have to wait 2 days to get out. My experience last 3-5? yrs has been last week of Charters (2nd or 3rd week of Aug) at the worst you'd be on the 2nd boat out. And this would be weekdays not weekends.
    Wish me luck

    Fishing was poor Friday and today. I'm not sure why, other than the river dropped pretty fast. The river should be stable for the next week and fishing good. But, the last few days haven't panned out that way. It's our last week, so the best I can say is that it could be, may be, will be or won't be...we'll just have to try and see. I'll only update this if fishing is extremely good or extremely poor.
    Charters close August 16th for the season.

    I'd have to agree with Hem on his prediction and for my part keep my net in the water.

    Dipping was good on Monday. We were 20th in line to go out and our group got our 90 in about 4 hours, done dipping by 11:30.
