Glennallen Subdistrict Subsistence Salmon Permits Available Online May 1, 2020

(Glennallen) - Glennallen Subdistrict subsistence salmon fishing permits will be available through the ADF&G online store beginning May 1. The public is encouraged to obtain their 2020 subsistence permit online to help minimize the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19). If you do not have internet access, please call your local Fish and Game office in Anchorage (907) 267-2218, Palmer (907) 746-6300, Fairbanks (907) 459-7207, Delta Junction (907) 895-4632 or Glennallen (907) 822-3309 and staff will issue a permit over the phone. Phone issued permits will be mailed through the postal service. Permits are still available in-person, but please know that no more than two visitors at a time will be permitted into the customer service area of ADF&G offices and all visitors are expected to practice current state mandated social distancing requirements while conducting in-person transactions.

Owners of fish wheels must register their fish wheel in person at the Glennallen office prior to deploying it in the Copper River. Fish wheels may be registered beginning May 1. To expedite the fish wheel registration process and minimize your time in the office, please call (907) 822-3309 before your visit.

New for 2020 is the ability to report Glennallen Subdistrict subsistence salmon fishing permit harvest online at https://www.adfg.alaska.gov/Harvest/. Alternatively, permit holders may still mail the completed harvest report to the address listed on the permit or drop it in the outside drop box at the Glennallen ADF&G office. Harvest reports are due by October 31, 2020, even if you did not fish your permit.

The Glennallen Subdistrict subsistence salmon fishery will open by regulation June 1. Information on the Copper River salmon fisheries can be found at: https://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=PersonalUsebyAreaInteriorChitina.main
