Seward Chamber of Commerce Press Release –
Some people judge the end of summer by the weather, some by events. For all you die hard Fishermen and women out there you know summer is coming to an end when the Seward Silver Salmon Derby rolls around. The last big event for the summer, so plan for it! August 9th-17th.
Prizes include a 2014 Chevy Silverado Double Cab 4×4, 2014 Equinox LS AWD and tagged fish worth thousands of dollars, $10,000 for the heaviest fish overall; and that is just to name a few. Top 20 fish reap rewards as do a variety of daily winners, and of course everyone is still talking about that elusive $50,000 dollar tagged fish. Don’t forget about the yellow copy drawing that could win you $1,000 just for buying a ticket!!

Now on our 59th Derby, The Seward Chamber of Commerce is excited that not only can you track the derby on Seward.com but also on the Alaska App!
