Kenai residents should not foot the bill for fishery

Posted: December 6, 2012 - 5:25pm  |  Updated: December 7, 2012 - 10:18am

I just finished reading your article on dipnetting (Claion, Dec. 3). I guess all I can say is, is the city council nuts? It is insane to even entertain the idea of the Kenai residents to shoulder this expense. The $240,000 required to have this inlet polluting, river raping chaotic fishery should be the sole responsibility of anyone who puts a net in the water. I know that the residents of Kenai that I know who use this fishery are respectful of our river and beaches. Not like our “guests” who treat this privilege like they are in a Fisherman Gone Wild film. Simply charge $100 for the permit and levy a $500 fine for any infraction including littering. At the current price of reds the cost of the permit should be recovered with a couple of fish.
