|Seward Chamber to host 62nd Salmon Derby|
The Seward Chamber of Commerce is gearing up to host its 62nd Seward Silver Salmon Derby® on August 12-20.
Started in 1956 the Seward Silver Salmon Derby is Alaska's oldest fishing derby 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.
Daily tickets are $10, tickets for the full event are $50. Proceeds from the Coho turned in support Fish Enhancement programs benefiting stocks in Resurrection Bay.
