In this video, John Burr, a fisheries biologist for the Alaska Department of Fish & Game, demonstrates how to sweep with a dipnet for salmon. Though this can be a strenuous method of dipnetting, it can be a very effective way of catching fish if done in the right location. John shows how to select a site, how to fish your net, and how to care for your catch. Copyright 2013 ADF&G. To watch the rest of the videos in this 4-part series, see:
