New schedule from July 2-17 includes a full 24-hour period on the weekend.
DILLINGHAM: During the peak of the commercial salmon fishing season this summer, a recent change from the Alaska Board of Fish meeting should give subsistence fishermen on Dillingham beaches a more user-friendly schedule to work with.
"On Dillingham Beaches from July 2-17, we go into the three-day-a-week subsistence schedule for salmon," said Ted Krieg at the ADF&G Office in Dillingham.
"The change now is that instead of 9:00 am Friday to 9:00 am Saturday, it'll be 9:00 am Saturday to 9:00 am Sunday. So there'll be a full 24 hour period on the weekend where people can subsistence salmon fish on Dillingham beaches," he said.
The schedule from July 2-17 for 2013:
9:oo am Monday to 9:00 am Tuesday
9:00 am Wednesday to 9:00 am Thursday
9:00 am Saturday to 9:00 am Sunday
Before and after those dates, fishing is continuously open on Dillingham beaches.
