    should be picking up around then. historically 75% of the fish dipped on the kasilof are harvested between july 11 and july 21. i went twice this last week, still a bit slow, but steady. did better on the north shore.

    Default keep on top of the numbers

    http://csfish.adfg.state.ak.us/mariner/uci/uciesc.php This will take you to the daily count. also call the 267-2512 hotline and punch in the commercial side. It will tell you about the windows and when comfishers will be out in force. Just can't go by dates. Tight nets
    If a dipnetter dips a fish and there is no one around to see/hear it, Did he really dip?

    Default Great timing

    Just watch for the weather to cooperate with your scheduled run - SW and W winds are best for the couple of days before you go. The ocean top currents "blow" the fish into the river mouths and as long as you check the escapement/OTF index (OTF over 90, three to five days before your go is good fisihing) from the comm hotline you should be able to predict one or two tides of good fishing. I usually like to hit the third week in July with the tirefecta of good news;

    High OTF
    No commercial EO's
    SW or W winds.

    When stars align the dipping is fine!


    Commercial hotline: 907-262-9611 (it will give you escapement numbers, OTF count and EO information)

    Looks like I'll be down there around the same time for some dipping as well. I never fished or dipnetted Kasilof before, so it should be fun!
