The Chitina Personal Use Dip Net Fishery closed on September 30, 2017. Reporting of participation and harvest to Alaska Department of Fish & Game (ADF&G) is required by October 15. These are the permits for dipnetting in the Copper River downstream of the Chitina-McCarthy Bridge, near the community of Chitina.
You are required by law to return your permit (or report on-line) even if you did not fish, or even if you went fishing but did not catch anything. Please review the harvest information you wrote down on the permit to make sure it is legible and correct. If no one in your household went dipnetting, please check the “Did Not Fish” box. On dates when personal use dipnetting occurred, but no fish were harvested, include the date and write a zero under the salmon species columns on the permit. Maintaining your personal use fishing opportunity at Chitina largely relies on your compliance with requirements, and your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
Please visit: https://www.adfg.alaska.gov/sf/PU/ to report online. However, you must know your permit number in order to report on-line. Alternatively, permits can be mailed to ADF&G with appropriate postage. For your convenience the address is printed on the permit. Permits can also be delivered to your local ADF&G office during regular business hours. If you have lost your permit, or if it is too damaged to go through the mail, contact an ADF&G office for instructions on how to report.
