Chitina Dipnetters:

My hope is in 2021 you had success in procuring an ample supply of Copper River salmon to meet your family's needs for the long winter.

As we start moving toward springtime in Alaska, issues and meetings concerning the Chitina dipnet fishery seem to increase as fast as the daylight.

Hello Dipnetters!

CDA Board Member John Siegfreid and I attended the December meeting of
the Alaska Board of Fisheries in Cordova. I'm happy to report that no
regulations negatively affecting the Chitina Personal Use fishery were
passed. The CDA's one beneficial proposal was denied.

Chitina Dipnetters:

The Alaska Board of Fisheries (BOF) will meet in Cordova from
November 30 - December 6 to deliberate and vote on proposals submitted
for Prince William Sound/Upper Copper and Susitna River finfish. The
Chitina Dipnetters Association (CDA) will be represented at the meeting
by two of our board members who will be defending proposals beneficial to Chitina
Personal Use Dipnetters (PU) and opposing those detrimental to our fishery.

Chitina Dipnetters:

This member email is long overdue and I apologize for that. The year
2020 has been one that most of us are probably glad is coming to a close.
What with Covid 19 and all the procedures to deal with it and the
contentious political elections, the poor 2020 run of sockeye salmon in the
Copper River only added to the negative column. I hope you were lucky, like
I was, and timed your dipnetting trip to Chitina when there were enough
salmon in the river to fill your limit.

As the dipnet season approaches, this year brings a few changes to
our fishery.

Permits for the Chitina personal use dipnet fishery, which have been
available online for a couple of years, became available on May 1.

Here in Fairbanks we still have several feet of snow on the ground, but it's
melting fast. The first migrating waterfowl have arrived at Creamers Field
reminding me that salmon dipnetting at Chitina is just around the corner.
