One of Alaska’s largest and oldest fishing derbies!

The 2019 Seward Silver Salmon Derby is dedicated to Monty and Florita Richardson

We proudly dedicate the 2019 Seward Silver Salmon Derby to Monty and Florita Richardson. These long-time Alaskans helped shape Seward’s charter fishing industry and participated in our Salmon Derby for six decades. Monty ran his charter business well into his 80s and passed away this spring at 101 years old.

The Richardsons are Seward legends and we’re grateful for their many contributions to our community.
