Residents of Alaska can dip-net at several places around Alaska for Red Salmon. We were at the mouth of the Kenai River.

The Kenai River personal-use dip net fishery opens on Tuesday and lasts through July 31. Over the three weeks, thousands of Alaskans will stand along the shore, wade into the water or take to boats with long-handled nets hoping to get their annual limit of 25 tasty red salmon for the head of a household plus 10 for each qualified dependent.

The Kenai River is a large glacial system draining the central Kenai Peninsula.  The river begins at Kenai Lake near the community of Cooper Landing and flows approximately 82 miles down to its mouth in Upper Cook Inlet, near the community of Kenai..
