Legal gear: set gillnet
5 AAC 39.105 defines a set gillnet as "a gillnet that has been intentionally set, staked, anchored, or otherwise fixed." See the Kasilof River set gillnet fishery web page for additional gear restrictions.
The following requirements for Kasilof River personal use set gillnetting are in addition to the regular requirements of a set gillnet:
A Kasilof River personal use set gillnet may not exceed 10 fathoms in length, six inches in mesh size, and 45 meshes in depth, and
No part of a Kasilof River set gillnet may be operated within 100 feet of another set gillnet, and
A person may not operate more than one set gillnet, and only one set gillnet may be operated per household, and
The permit holder shall attend the set gillnet at all times when it is being used to take fish.
There are no inherent rights establishing a set gillnet fishing site. The placement of signs, running lines, stakes, buoys, or dry nets on the beach in anticipation of tides does not constitute any prior right to a net location.
