    Default Our Dipnetting Section, including Salmon Run Charts!

    Hi folks,

    Looks like dipnetting season is coming up soon, and I thought I would remind you that late last spring we finally launched our comprehensive dipnetting section, which includes pages on the following:

    DIPNETTING ESSENTIALS
    Salmon Run Charts
    We're in the process of making it pretty, but it has all the runs in the entire state that ADFG tracks, and it is uploaded in real time, live from the source. Our Salmon Run Charts are found on just about every dipnetting page in the entire section.

    General Dipnetting Page

    Includes Salmon Run Charts, an orientation to the entire dipnet fishery across the state, with details on each location, and much more.

    Dipnet Rigging Page
    Detailed instructions on what kinds of nets to use in different areas, and how to rig them up for the various dipnet fisheries.

    Dipnetting Gear Page
    A detailed discussion of all the gear you need to go dipnetting in the various personal-use fisheries.

    Dipnetting Methods Page
    Explores the various methods used in each of Alaska's dipnet fisheries.

    Caring for Your Catch
    How to clean and keep your catch in the field, before you are able to get it all home.

    Awesome! Just turned my last fillet into salmon spread a couple weeks ago...I am ready for a fresh red!!! One thing I would bring to your attention....on the "general dipnetting" page, it appears to say that kings are an available species at Kasilof...they are not.

    As far as dipnetting, you are correct. Although, you can keep kings in the Kasilof Gillnet Fishery. This should be clarified. I did not read through the entire "general dipnetting" link, so maybe it's clarified somewhere in there.

    Good catch! That one has been corrected. If you see anything else let me know. Also if some information is missing, that would help as well. I want this section to really be useful for dipnetters, and all concerned with this fishery and the effects it has locally.

    Just off the top of my head, I would let folks know that 4wd is basically a necessity at Kasilof south side....and keep an eye on your rig when the tide's coming in....I've seen a few trucks go for a swim there. Also might be a good idea to remind people that river water is NOT sanitary...probably shouldn't rinse your fillets in it....

    I should be able to launch the Kasilof page today. Is anyone aware of any private property issues / camping restrictions at the mouth? I don't fish the Kasilof and have only been there a few times, researching for this section.

    I think most people just camp on the beach...I know some folks camp on private land off Cohoe Loop and ride ATVs and whatnot back and forth....not aware of any issues or conflicts although I'm sure they happen occasionally....south side is usually pretty friendly and laid back scene....dude
