Dipped at the Kasilof on Sunday. It wasn't too bad, people were getting about 5 fish each during the incoming tide over a one hour period. Then a state trooper came by to check permits. He casually told us that we were fishing illegally and had to pull our nets out of the water. Pretty much everyone was surprised by this news. No one was cited but it was a major buzz kill to stop fishing while fish were still coming in. We were lined up starting from buoy 6 going North towards river.
Anybody have some insight on this? I saw about a hundred people dip from the South beach last year with no problems. Lots of long time dippers said they've been going to that spot for many years. The ADF&G reg guide map shows a shaded region that is open to dipnetting. According to this map we were ok, it's North of the Cohoe Rd.
