    Folks with trailered boats launched off the gravel portion of the south bank. We just threw our 12' skiff in off the beach on the north bank.

    I don't recommend trying to launch with a trailer on the north bank, due to the likelihood of getting stuck below the high tide line or having to run over people at the point in the process.

There is also a shallow spot just below the old coho cove campground that might get you. Depending on the size of your boat you might be able to launch it at the mouth of the river but if it's a heavier boat the sand might get you. And I definitely wouldn't try to navigate the river below the grassy banks to at least the processor at low tide with a prop.

    Then how did the boats I saw get in there? (I ask because. I have never run it, but it seems that it must be possible if other boats are running around at the mouth.) Then again, there were very few boats dip netting in the mouth.

    Yeah, I think so. I haven't yet done it myself, but last year there were two guys ina. 12' v hull with a 6 hp Johnson dip netting in huge mouth at low tide, as well as a monstrosity of a Jon boat with a 90 hp something on it and about 8 people on board, also at low tide.

    None of this BS retarded crap about 2 strokes, either.

    I was all set to dipnet Kasilof by boat ths year, until the girlfriend kayboshed it. I'll wave at you for the shore. Yay.

    Kasilof boat launch

    Planning to use the public launch near the highway once dipnetting opens. Are the river miles to the mouth doable with a prop? Low tide and high, or high only? 2 stroke restricted? Thanks!
