Dipnetting! My first catch of the summer was the highlight… As it is still my only catch of the summer.
With little luck on the Kenai, we tried the Kasilof River. We slept in my friends’ fancy conversion van and awoke at 3am to fireworks and the incoming tide. Dipnet camping is an experience filled with fireworks, 4 wheelers, narly looking Alaskans, and fish guts.
After the dipnetting crowds, breaking my fishing rod out and finding a secluded stretch of river is sounding nice.
