DIP NET CHARTERS
Salmon Grove offers subsistence dipnet charters and support for Alaska residents. Our dipnetting trips access the “above the bridge” subsistence fishery on the Copper River in Copper Center, Alaska. In addition to our fully guided dip net charters we offer a drop-off service for experienced Alaskan dipnetters. Our stretch of the Copper River is the most remote and void of any crowds. To participate in the “above the bridge” subsistence fishery users are required to obtain the Glennallen sub-district subsistence permit directly from ADF&G. Permits are available online at the Alaska Department of Fish and Game website. Our dip net season runs June- September.
Salmon Grove campground on the Klutina River is the perfect place for the self-guided angler to experience some of the best salmon fishing in Alaska. Avid and beginner fisherman alike will enjoy bank-fishing for Copper River red salmon right from the campground. During red salmon season when the Klutina River fish are running strong it is common for everyone in camp to catch a limit of reds. The walk-in fishing for red salmon from the bank will keep any serious sport-fisherman busy. We have large freezers, fillet tables and water available for you to process your fish. Our mission is to make it easy for everyone to access the river and provide a clean place for you to care for your catch.
