Join us on our wildly popular full service dipnet charter "Below the Bridge" in the Personal Use dipnet fishery.
BEST PRICE, MAXIMUM FUN! Charter allows a party of FIVE to secure the boat for a day, time of their choosing.
Back for 2022! Offering a 6pm departure for an abbreviated evening charter in the Personal Use fishery.
Dipnet above the bridge from one of our 13'' INMAR MilSpec 380 inflatable boats. Equipped a new Honda 20HP Outboard!
The BOF restricted subsistence access to Alaskan residents. Charters are no longer available above the bridge. Does this impact your food security?
Where it all began! We started operating Dipnet charters on the Kenai in 2013. We are now the largest charter in Alaska!
Each season dipnets are being lost or damaged at an unsustainable rate despite efforts to the contrary. We are offering a couple options to offset these costs that can be added to your charter.
1. OPT IN $10* Paying the $10 dipnet indemnity fee will cover the loss of one dipnet or one torn net per person, per charter.
2. OPT OUT $0* You will assume the risk for the replacement cost of the damaged or lost dipnet(s).
*Max cost per dipnet is $250 depending on configuration. Replacement netting is $35 ea.
Coolers are not provided! We will however supply heavy duty 28 gallon brute totes for your use if needed. Having your own cooler helps with fish sorting underway and speeds up offloading of your catch at the end of the charter. It is also a convenient spot to sit on as there are not seats aboard our boats. As always, our crew can assist you in carrying your catch to your vehicle if needed.
ICE ICE BABY! Keeping your catch cold is the surest way to preserve the taste & texture of your catch! PLEASE have at least 20#'s of ice per person on board.
We offer both bulk flake ice as well as 20# bagged flake ice for sale to keep your catch cold and fresh while underway. Don't forget ice for the ride home especially on warmer days!

We don't guarantee fish or limits but promise to put you in the best position possible to maximize your opportunity to dipnet salmon. Factors outside our control include but are not limited to run timing, river conditions, and an individual's skill level. These factors can impact fishing success. As such, we don't offer refunds based on fishing success.
Guides and Deckhands work extremely hard to ensure your trip on the Copper River is safe and memorable regardless of fishing success. Please consider a tip of 10-20% of booking total in recognition of their hard efforts both on the boat and in preparation of your charter.
