MT-mommy, get non-resident licenses. They are more expensive, but still worth the bucks.

Actually, if you want to go rod n reel fishing out here, you can go without a fishing license. It's called subsistence use fishing for salmon. I haven't gotten at license in years!

Since this came into place, I have never seen any Fish & Game Troopers out on the river checking people. Just make sure you have your life jackets in the boat, one for every person in it. He can talk to Andre at work and have him take the hubby out fishing in his way overpowered Wooldridge boat!

So did you decide that Bethel was a good fit for you? What did you decide about the dog? We have a golden retriever and she is so much a part of the family I don't know if we could leave here her. The problem is the place where we might rent doesn't allow pets so that is a huge problem. If you did move there how is it going and how have you fit in and is it what you expected, better or worse??? Thanks, Anne

Why do People Individuals Flock to Bethel, Alaska? Government should spend fair amount for big Community Recreation Center. Let it's population stay's in Bethel for long periods of time...
