A Bit of History
The Seward Silver Salmon Derby is a long-time family
favorite for Alaskans and visitors alike. The annual
competition brings anglers to Resurrection Bay each August
in a bid to bring in the largest silver salmon.
Started in 1956, the derby is one of the oldest and largest in
the state and derby days are Seward’s busiest fishing days each
year, with thousands casting their line for the chance to win.
