Dipnetting for salmon opened on the Susitna River this week. It hasn’t been allowed for as long as I’ve been coming here the last 8 years but this year they decided to allow it. Jeff, our friend Bo and I tried it but it wasn’t easy. I got one but that was it for us after a whole day fishing. The river is too fast, and the fish are too deep to be very successful. It’s a hard fishery to fish.
