Silver Salmon Derby – Aug 13 – 21

2016 – The 61st Seward Silver Salmon Derby®: August 13 – 21

The Seward Silver Salmon Derby® is one of the oldest and largest fishing derbies in the State. Seward’s Derby is equally popular with locals, other Alaska residents, and visiting anglers from around the nation and world. Anglers vie for the largest Coho (Silver) Salmon and try to catch tagged fish worth prizes. Anglers turn their fish in daily, which are sold to raise funds for fish enhancement efforts and fisheries scholarships for graduating high school students.

  • 1st Place Winner: Mike Hanson – 16.22 lb Silver

  • John R. Ekelmann 1st Place Youth – 13.76 lb Silver

A HUGE Thank-you to all the awesome derby fishermen, women and kids!
