I have never been dipnetting at Chitina but have been talking to anyone I can about it. I have been asking about access points, whether or not bringing kids is a good idea, (I have a 12, 8 and 5 year old), if you can get to better spots with an ATV and how far you have to walk to get to a decent fishing spot. I have probably talked to at least 10 different people and have gotten 10 different answers. Some told me you have to walk about 7 miles to get to the beach, some say it's easier on an ATV and some say it's only a short walk and that ATV's are impossible. Can anyone tell me the real deal since I have never been there. I just want to make sure I know what I'm getting into if I drive the 6 plus hours to get there. Thanks.
