For several weeks each summer, the Kenai River's mouth in Kenai, Alaska, takes on a carnival atmosphere as Alaskan residents come to the area from across the state to catch sockeye salmon with dipnets. The fishery, open to Alaskan residents only, is designated a "personal use" fishery and is designed to help Alaskans fill freezers and canning jars with fish.
