Summer Harvest

Dipnetting at the mouth of the Kenai River, Kenai, Alaska, in July.

Due to an abundance of fish, Alaska allows dipnetting for personal use for certain runs of salmon with strict permit requirements and seasonal limits. The mouth of the Kenai River is one of the most popular spots for sockeyes (reds) during the month of July. This is an event of major proportions drawing people from great distances, temporarily swelling the population, and making local businesses very happy.
