    Went out after work and dipped the low tide swing. Hardly any boat dippers on the river. It was awesome. 3 hours, 45 fish.

    Wow, that is pretty good. One net or two?

    Does anyone dip with one net from a boat?

    Current salmon run charts for all species can be found on our site AT THIS LINK. It's a live feed from ADFG, so it's the same data you would get over there. Also our dip netting pages have the live-feed charts embedded.

    Two on this trip. Usually it is just my wife but she brought a co-worker. I just drive the boat, too hard to dip and steer.

    Wow...it was only a 10,000 fish day. I figured it was at least a 30K day with the way we were picking up 4-5 fish each drift.

    I think the weir is at River Mile 19, so there's a lag from when they hit the mouth to when they get counted.... I think.
    My signature is awesome.

    You're right, I forgot about that. Anything coming in when we were fishing will be on today's count.

    Yes, typically takes them 24 hours to pass the counter from the mouth.

    I have boat dipped once. My wife mostly ran the net, but we had two in the boat. I scooped when I was able, but running the motor or oars was nearly a full time job. Most memorable fish was a fallout that was barely struggling on the surface.

    Hi Mike. Will you possibly be moving these posts to the 2019 Kenai River Dipnetting thread in the sticky section ? If so, I will probably wait to post to some of the questions/ comments here. Thanks a lot.
