    Shoot me a note, Jake. I'm learning the Copper and would be happy to share what I think I know. I'll be there again this year, from shore. Killed them last year!

    When did you go with AK xpeditions? I have seen them out there but wondered how good they were. Did you go above or below the bridge?

    Just curious because I've never really gotten into the copper river dip netting before. What is the peak time to go? If you had one weekend to go, when would you go and why? Thanks for your input.

    I notice none of those caudal fins are clipped akmike30. Not being a smart aleck, just a friendly reminder. I've found it is easy to miss clipping one if you throw them all in the cooler before clipping. Not uncommon to see troopers look through every fish at the boat launch, and all it takes is one unclipped or one not properly clipped to make the drive to Chitina a little less profitable.

    No you just freshen up on your regs! Copper river is different from Kenai. As long as the fish are not concealed ( cooler lids open) and not left fishing area there in no laws broken!

    Copper River regulations are the same as Kenai/ Kasilof.

    You just proved my point. Both personal fisheries (Chitina & UCI) have the SAME recording requirements. You must record your fish before concealing from view or leaving the fishing site.

    "No you just freshen up on your regs! Copper river is different from Kenai." Your exact words. Below is straight from the ADF&G website.

    From the UCI page:

    Permits must be filled in each time you fish

    You must record the date, location, and harvest by species each time you fish. You must fill in this information even if you did not catch any fish - write "0" in the space provided for harvest.
    The salmon must be recorded on the permit before it is concealed from plain view, such as put in a cooler, or before the salmon is transported from the fishing site, such as your vehicle. Failure to record the salmon on the permit is a violation, and may be subject to fines and loss of future personal use fishing privileges.

    From the Chitina page:


    Permits must be filled in each time you fish
    You must record the date, location, and harvest by species each time you fish. You must fill in this information even if you did not catch any fish - write "0" in the space provided for harvest.
    The salmon must be recorded on the permit before it is concealed from plain view, such as put in a cooler, or before the salmon is transported from the fishing site, such as your vehicle. Failure to record the salmon on the permit is a violation, and may be subject to fines and loss of future personal use fishing privileges.

    You stated the recording regulations are different for Kenai. They are the same.
