Don’t give up your opportunity to fish the Chitina dip net fishery next year. Chitina Personal Use Salmon Fishery permit holders must submit this year’s report by October 15. Permit reporting is mandatory, and all permit holders are required by law to report even if they did not fish or if they fished and caught nothing.

Permit reports must be completed online through the ADF&G Harvest Reporting webpage. Permits delivered by mail or by hand-delivery will not be accepted.

Permit holders who fail to report online by the October 15 deadline will be denied a permit for the fishery for the next calendar year.

Timely and accurate reporting of participation and harvest is necessary for the sustainable management of the Copper River salmon fisheries.
