Optional Dipnet Protection

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 $200 depending on configuration, Replacement netting is $35 ea.

Coolers and Ice Required

Coolers will no longer be provided on the dipnet charter. We will however supply heavy duty 28 gallon brute totes for your use. These are smaller and hold less fish than our coolers but when full are lighter to handle than our large 165qt coolers  when full weigh in excess of 325lbs.  (Sockeye on average weigh 5lbs ea. Kings 26lbs ea.) 

We encourage you to bring your own boat coolers and ice to keep your catch cold and fresh while underway. 

Having your own cooler also helps with fish sorting underway and speeds up offloading of your catch at the end of the charter. As always, we will assist you in carrying your catch to your vehicle if needed.

We are Guides not Gods!

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 run timing, river conditions or an individual's skill level. These factors can impact fishing success.  As such, we don't offer refunds based on fishing success. 

Gratuities Not Included

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 in recognition of their efforts.
