    No problem. I think they did a pretty good job with it. Now if we can get a decent plan for the old Trujillos site. Real shame that's not being utilized, although I'm also nervous about blowing the ditch wide open the way we have the Kenai.

    I fished a couple hours each side of the evening high tide Thursday night on the south beach. Missed one, landed one for 4 1/2 hrs. Seemed to be about the average.

    Two dipping from my boat a total of 13 hours last Thursday eve thru Saturday late afternoon caught 41 sockeye. The fish were only trickling in, so this was slow catching based on my 10 years of experience there. GL all!

    Went yesterday (7/19) left late and only picked up 9 total for 2 nets.
    Got a new game plan today (7/20)left earlier and picked up 76 in ~ 8 hours or so with 3 nets.
    unfortunately today was a commercial opener while yesterday was not.
    Darn those commercial nets.Lol
    Lost several fish and my buddy lost 3 nice kings. One put a hole in his brand new web. Fortunately I had my mending needle and twine handy and we patched it up quickly.
    We could have gotten more but shoot we are pretty wore out from dipping then cleaning them all.
    I would guess we were above average for today based on what we saw.
    It helps when your buddies own a boat and know this fishery well!!

    Just came from the river to see what was going on. Was there from 12:30 to 1:30 pm. Saw the usual big beach crowd and a handful of boaters. Looked like pretty good fishing from the shore and not bad from the boats either. I would say if u picked a group of say, 20 dippers, at least one from that group would be dragging a fish in on a continuous basis. Maybe even better than that.

    I prefer Ch. 2 to the others most of the time, but they don't always get it right.
