Dipnet Season on the Kenai

For just a few weeks a year on Alaska's Kenai River, locals are allowed to use dipnet -- homemade nets attached to long metal poles -- to catch enough salmon to last the winter. For $20, anyone can make a net and catch dozens of fish. NPR's Elizabeth Arnold reports, in the second part of her Morning Edition series on fishing.
