    I know it's early yet, but does anyone have any reports from dipping down on the Kasilof? My July is getting eaten up so I am looking to make a run down midweek to make sure I get some fish in the freezer. Sonar counts have been pretty low so far, but it's above the PU area, so I just wanted to see if anyone had better information. I know it will be slow, but if I'm only going to catch 5 in 24 hrs from a boat it might not be worth it.

      My neighbor came back yesterday (Sunday) with 7 reds. They fished Sat night/Sun morning.

        I have been doing some work down there on Kasilof Beach Rd. and seen a fair amount of traffic going in and out with nets and 4 wheelers, but have not gone dip netting myself, spoken to anyone that has, nor driven down to the campground lately. Looks like either those using this forum have nothing to brag about or share though.

        Please remember, HAUL IT IN, HAUL IT OUT. My backyard is not your landfill or Petri Dish.

        Also, the speed limit on Kasilof Beach Road is 15 miles an hour, please slow down. At minimum your speeding ruins the road, and you don't want to hit something, someone, churn up a lot of dust, or get the lady with the SLOW sign pissed off at you. Form what I have been told, she is a nice person, but not terribly friendly with thoughtless, inconsiderate, ignorant speeders.

          MRFISH, do you know if they were fishing by boat or shore? And was that 7 in total between a couple people or each? Also, your signature is great! Ron Swanson has a lot of wisdom.

          uhldwm, yeah I've gone early like this years before and it seems to typically be nothing to write home about this time of year. I'm hoping that I am able to net a few more by boat vs shore to make it worth the quick run down/back. Thanks for the reminders too about use of the area. One reason I really like this fishery is it has the feel of people left alone to go harvest their fish. The people/community there have always been great when I go. I feel like if we can take care of it and be respectful on our own it's more likely to stay that way. As good or better than you found it is the attitude to have.

            Any reports? Heading down Wednesday. Numbers donít seem very great, and I usually dip the Kenai but seems itís too early there also. But I work on the slope so this is my only chance. Címon fish

              I went two days ago, fished couple hours of the ebb....got one nice blueback, then nothing. Family right next to me was slaying them however....fish are there, not huge numbers, but they are coming in.

                    We had good luck. We fished for a couple hours on Wednesday and got 30. We fished for maybe an hour or hour and a half on Thursday and caught 45 to finish our limit. We were fishing with 2 nets from a raft.

                    Our friend fishing from shore fished for about an hour and caught 10.

                          My niece finished with a family of 3 on Wednesday and Thursday last week from the north beach. Not sure how many hours a day they out in, but 4 nets captured 69 sockeye.

                              My daughter and I dipped from a boat Friday eve and Sat morn and brought home 31. Dipping was most productive on the north shore Friday eve, then south shore Sat morn. The catch rate fell to near zero about 2 hours after the setnet EO opener began Sat morn...no surprise.
