    Interesting. On the Copper, we were told that "fishing site" is the boat being used. Fish therefore don't need to be clipped recorded as long as they are in the boat, on the river. Fish must be marked before leaving the fishing site, or being concealed from view. I can see it being different on the Kenai, in that there is no sport fishing on the copper, so its pretty cut and dried that they are PU or subsistence fish if they're in a boat on the copper. I'd like to see the statute saying that those tickets are legal.
    I bet since there isn't dipping allowed past the bridge, that is considered leaving the dipping site once you travel past it. On the Copper you can dip anywhere so technically you don't leave the fishing site till you beach the boat.

    Hopefully, but usually not until the next high tide after the nets come out of the water.

    Also, once they pull the beach nets on Thursday, they can't fish them until 36 hours later, which means the soonest any beach nets can fish again is 11 AM Saturday. Commercial boats may be allowed to fish by emergency order on Friday.

    Dipped from a boat on 15th
    Good from 6:30 AM to 7:15, got 20 in 45 min.
    Slow the rest of the day ,
    Commercial guys have been out almost every day.
    Amazing how they can shut down the fish coming into the river.

    Be to know ahead of time when the commercial openings are going to be. ? ?
    Is there a web site that shows when the commercial openings are /will be. ? ?

    We fished all day yesterday (Tuesday). 43 reds split between 4 permits. Pretty good on the first high tide, very slow the rest of the day.

    Not me! I was just wondering if the reds are running. Not if anyone kept the wrong fish. I'd go to the Russian river for that! Be a highlight of my day netting a king, even if I had to throw it back!

    Well I guess you should consider me as "concerned" as well because I was wondering the same thing.......

    Yeah, I didn't think so, based on how you presented it in your post as one of the highlights of the day.

    No king retention this year for dip netters.
