2019 Upper Cook Inlet Personal Use Salmon Permits Must be Returned by August 15

(Palmer) - The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) would like to remind 2019 Upper Cook Inlet Personal Use Salmon permit holders that Thursday, August 15, 2019, is the deadline to report your harvest for the Kasilof River gillnet, Kasilof and Kenai rivers dipnet, and Fish Creek dipnet fisheries.

ADF&G reminds participants they are required by law to report their harvests even if they did not fish, or if they fished but caught nothing. Compliance with the permit requirements is important for future management of the Upper Cook Inlet personal use fisheries.

Participants can report their harvest online on the ADF&G webpage at https://www.adfg.alaska.gov/Harvest/, regardless if they obtained an electronic or paper permit. Once harvest data have been submitted, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the participant. If you opt to report your harvest online, you do not need to return your paper permit copy. Though online reporting is encouraged, participants may also mail their filled-out permits, with appropriate postage, to the address printed on the back or hand-deliver their permits to local ADF&G offices during regular business hours.

For additional information, please contact Palmer Fishery Biologist Adam St. Saviour at (907) 746-6329 or the Anchorage Sport Fish Information Center at (907) 267-2218.
