I hope to make my first visit to China Poot Bay soon and was wondering what it's like to dipnet there. I've done the Kenai/Kasilof dipnets. But I"m wondering if I want a smaller dip net at China Poot (more like a large landing net?). Also, in terms of catching fish, does tide matter? I know boat access is tide dependent. Do you go in at mid falling and fish til mid rising? Do you go as far upstream as possible? Do you need chest waders for the dipping? How easy would the hike be to the dipnetting spots for 3 and 5 year old kids? Are bears an issue? Thanks.
