China Poot Bay Personal Use Salmon Fishery
Overview

China Poot Bay is located approximately four miles southeast of the Homer Spit, across Kachemak Bay.  There is no road access to China Poot Bay.

China Poot is enhanced with sockeye salmon by the Cook Inlet Aquaculture Association, paid for by commercial fishers.  Those that escape the commercial nets are available to harvest by personal use dipnetters.

Sockeye salmon generally return to China Poot Creek by July 1, with the typical peak of the run between July 18 and July 31.
