Operating during the dipnetting season
Mon-Sat from 4:45am-6:00pm
Alaskan residents only
Copper River Charters and Hem Charters operate from 4:45am to 6pm Monday through Saturday and we are closed on Sunday. NEW THIS YEAR, when placing gear in line during the day, 6am to 6pm, you also need to put your name on a sign-in list, available with one of our employees. Our fare is still only $110 per person and that includes use of our cleaning table and an all-day or overnight drop off. There will be a $20 charge on the return trip for every 1-10 fish over the permit holder’s initial limit of 25. No checks or credit cards accepted. We don’t take reservations, instead we work on a first come, first serve basis from a line that starts in front of a red cone all the way to the left hand corner of O’Brien Creek. Overnighters are welcome. A piece of gear like a cooler, dipnet or bucket holds your spot; but only if you are there when boat loading starts at 4:45am.
Things to bring: HEADLAMP, dipnet, life jacket, tie off rope, stringers for 5 fish on each, hip boots, bucket to wash your spot, fillet or cleaning knife, warm clothes, only 60 qt. coolers or less allowed on the boats with food and drink.
