MUST BE ALASKAN RESIDENT TO PARTICIPATE
Our best value! Time on the Copper is always better with your friends and family! With our "Book the Boat" option, you select the date and time for your Dipnet adventure. Your party will be responsible for showing up with the appropriate permit and fishing licenses on the date and time of your reservation.
This is the most cost effective charter we offer for groups up to five or those parties who wish to have a smaller more exclusive experience and who do not wish to dip with strangers. Best part is, you can add an additional (sixth) person and share a net at a steep discount! This is great for kids or parties who want to take a break or relax and enjoy the magnificent scenery of the charter. Bring an out of town guest as an observer and let them watch, but no touching!
WHAT IF FISH AND GAME CLOSES ONE OF THE DIPNET FISHERIES?
We will work with you to reschedule your charter to another in season date and time, transfer it to a Kenai charter or offer charter credit towards a charter for the following season.
This is a fully guided and outfitted trip on the Copper River. We help you remove fish from your net, bonk, gill and place in totes. This gets your net back in the water faster to maximize your catch potential. Charter time includes travel time to and from fishery and is about 5-1/2 hours start to finish.
The Chitina Subdistrict is classified as a personal use fishery, and dipnets are the only allowable gear. Sport fishing license is required for this fishery. Permits are available at local retailers or online.
