local tip

How to know when the fishing's good:

 

look to the

fish trucks!

"If the trucks are coming back from the Situk with more than 10 fish totes on the bed, that's how I know that the fish are running. When the bed is empty, I don't bother."

--Local Man Stan

WILL THE NETS AFFECT MY CATCH?

No, nets are limited to 120 feet long and cover only a small part of the estuary. This allows many fish to continue upstream into the Situk River.
