Dipnetters have something to celebrate!

Due to the December 2014 Alaska Board of Fisheries (BOF) passage of the Chitina Dipnetters Association (CDA) sponsored proposal #39, the 2015 Chitina Dip Net Fishery bag limit will be increased. The new limit is 25 salmon for the head of household (permit holder) plus 10 salmon for each additional household member. This means a household of 1 can take 25, household of 2 a limit of 35, household of 3 can take 45 salmon, and so on. The total bag limit cannot include more than 1 king salmon.
