O'Brien Creek trail update

The Tazlina DOT crew, using monies from the $15 Chitina Personal Use dipnet permit fee, were back at work this October clearing the O'Brien to Haley Creeks trail used by dipnetters to access the Woods Canyon section of the Copper River. They began where they left off (5.2 mile) in the fall of 2018 and, after removing 2 large rock slides, were able to complete another mile of trail repair. The crew hopes to continue work in spring and fall of 2020. Barring any new land slides, work should go quickly up to the landslide at Haley Creek. Pictures.

It's a fun time to hob nob with other dipnetters and hear the latest on our fishery from ADF&G and DOT representatives. If you're passionate about dipnetting, consider tossing your hat in the ring to become a board member! Nominations will be taken on the floor immediately followed by a vote. Door prizes will be drawn throughout the meeting. Food and drinks will be served at intermission.
