Dip Netting

Mid-July is time for reds to rush into Cook Inlet and up the Kenai River. And at the river’s mouth, to navigate their way past a phalanx of nets held out in the current on long poles. We’re talking about dipnetting the Kenai, the kind of fishing that makes you feel like a grizzly bear, snatching the salmon out of the river by skill and chance. A fisherman, a local official, and a biologist  talk about how to dipnet the Kenai, and the impact on residents of what’s been called a riverside Woodstock. Today’s show, which was pre-recorded, covers dipnetting opportunities and impacts.
