    Default Kasilof regulation question

    I'm getting stuff ready since we'll be bank fishing the Kasilof for the 1st time ever this weekend and I was checking the regulations (ADF&G, page 44) to make sure we won't be doing anything illegal.
    I have a few questions but just want to make sure I'm reading them right.

    Are treble hooks allowed? My answer...Yes
    Are baited, ie Kwikfish, lures allowed? My answer...yes
    KS > 20" 2 pd/pp... only 1 may be wild
    KS < 20" 10 pd/pp... does it matter if any are wild? Are they good eating?
    Is dynamite allowed? I don't see it mentioned so it MUST be ok, right!?

    Also when is a good time to hit the river? am? pm? It's all we plan on doing anyways but thought I'd ask.

    Thanks for any help. I'm trying to teach my kids to take care of stuff and obey rules which is why I'm trying to be squared away 1st.
    Thanks.

    KS > 20" 2 pd/pp... only 1 may be wild on saturday on sunday the must both be hatchery
    KS < 20" 10 pd/pp... does it matter if any are wild? no Are they good eating? yes! try it on the grill.
    Is dynamite allowed? Check the state wide regs at the beginning of the book.
    It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

    Just to clairify:

    Until June 30, wild king salmon (fish with an adipose fin) 20 inches or greater may be kept only on TUESDAYS, THURSDAYS, and SATURDAYS.

    See page 44 of reg book

    Default Good thing...

    I asked. I probably would've/could've overlooked the Tues, Thur, Sat, rule in my excitement of fishcamping as my son calls it.
    So after June 30, it goes to 1 wild king any day?

    Thanks for the info. I'm still a noob and need to ask these things.
