The Silvers Are Back!
We’re thrilled to announce that the silver salmon have returned to Resurrection Bay! Our 64th annual Silver Salmon Derby begins Saturday, Aug. 10 at 6 am, and runs until Sunday, Aug. 18 at noon.
The fishing has been good in the outer islands of the bay, and the bite is picking up closer to the head of the bay. Don’t miss your chance to land some fresh, bright, hard-fighting coho salmon!
Many Ways to Win
We’ve got loads of prizes, including tagged fish (up to $50,000 cash!), prizes for the top 20 heaviest fish overall (up to $10,00 cash!), daily prizes for heaviest fish and random weights, and more!
Proceeds from the fish buy-back program support our smolt rearing program, in partnership with Cook Inlet Aquaculture Association.
Daily tickets are $10, or fish all nine days for $50. Purchase your tickets at the Derby booth (across from the Harbormaster’s office near B dock) or The Fish House (1303 Fourth Ave).
Special thanks to our most generous partners for making this great summer tradition possible!
