Online Harvest Reporting Required For Cook Inlet Personal-Use Salmon Fishing

The following is courtesy of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game:

Palmer) – Beginning with the 2021 fishing season, all Upper Cook Inlet Personal Use Salmon Fishery permit participation and harvest reporting must be completed online through the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) harvest reporting webpage. Online reporting will be required regardless of whether you obtained a UCI permit through the ADF&G online storeor through a vendor, and whether you went dipnetting or not. Returning permits by mail or hand-delivery is no longer an acceptable means to report in 2021 and future years. Harvest and participation must be reported online no later than August 15, 2021.

To report online, enter your last name, permit number, and select 2021 Upper Cook Inlet Personal Use Salmon Permit under the Southcentral subheading. If you don’t have your permit number available, you can look up your permit online. If you have questions about online harvest reporting, please contact your local ADF&G office.

Beginning with the 2022 fishing season, the penalty for failure to report your Upper Cook Inlet Personal Use Salmon Fishery participation and harvest online by the August 15 reporting deadline is the loss of personal use fishing privileges in 2023. Permit holders who fail to report will be denied a permit for the fishery in the year following the failure to report.

To help you report your harvest in a timely manner, be sure to provide a valid email address when obtaining your permit so that ADF&G can send you a reminder email prior to the end of the fishing season. Additionally, you can subscribe to receive Emergency Orders and Advisory Announcements email notifications for the Northern Kenai Peninsula and Mat-Su / West Cook Inlet areas.
