Anderson Creek (lower Susitna River) Closed to Dipnetting

(Palmer) - The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) is closing dipnetting in the vicinity of Anderson Creek of the lower Susitna River effective 6:00 a.m. Saturday, July 10 through 11:00 p.m. Saturday, July 31, 2021. The area closed to dipnetting is identified by ADF&G markers located approximately 50 feet upstream and 300 feet downstream of the mouth of Anderson Creek. In addition, dipnetting is not allowed in Anderson Creek.

“A personal use dipnet fishery will be underway on the lower Susitna River beginning this Saturday, July 10, and will be open on Saturdays and Wednesdays through the rest of July. Anderson Creek supports a small stock of coho salmon that could be overexploited if dipnetting were allowed in its vicinity,” stated Area Management Biologist Sam Ivey. “This action will provide protection for those fish.”
