Copper River Dip Netting

 Heading back out on the McCarthy Road, we were treated to the sight of clusters of dip netting fishermen along the Copper River near Chitina.  These folks were fishing for their own personal use according to Alaska legal requirements - a privilege only allowed to citizens of Alaska.

 They were dragging in salmon by the dozens in their dip nets.  So entertaining - we watched for at least an hour before we headed on down the road.
