Welcome to the 61st Silver Salmon Derby.

Seward, Alaska, August 11 –

The 61st Seward Silver Salmon Derby starts this Saturday bright and early, at 6 o’clock in the morning.  The Chamber of Commerce will be having the annual kick-off party at the derby booth Friday evening from 5:30 – 8:00.  The derby itself will conclude on Sunday the 21st at noon with the awards ceremony and Salmon bake at 4:00 in the Branson Pavilion down by the waterfront.


This year has had many anglers and boat captains concerned that the silvers were not going to come in.  But they are just running late.  This is okay because the 2016 Derby Prize List is bigger and better than ever.  Derby tickets are $10.00 for a day and $50.00 for the entire derby.  With a derby ticket you can win a tagged fish that can be worth $50,000.00, 2 round-trip tickets from Alaska Airlines or the Derby Double, a 2016 Chevy Silverado and a 2016 Chevy Equinox.  All fifteen fish were tagged earlier this week within Resurrection Bay.  There are daily prizes and different categories that the entire family can participate in.
