Mid August was good...

Mid August was good...

Last year two of us went down around the 12th of the month and did real well... 50+ fish in 2 hrs. (Proxy) Just like any other time, it is hit and miss.

Chitna should be good thru August, the 2nd run of reds (bigger fish) will be in so the dipping will be good and the kings should be about gone so you wont have any 60 lb suprises in your net, there will probably be a few silvers to get too.

just got back and it was great

Just got back from a weekend at chitna dippnetting and we limited out with 5 guys in about 4-5 hours of fishing. had 2 triples and a bunch of doubles and 3 kings. one @ 56 lbs.
Furthermore I just realized that I should have posted this in the dippnetting forum.
will post there too :)
Fish early in the AM or late in the evening. Or both
We use a boat and run the shore just above the cut off sign accross from Haleys creek.
Saw some kids almost loose a 4 wheeler in Haleys creek it only had the handlebars sticking out before someone realized it was in the water.
