When I moved here almost ten years ago now I remember hearing fish stories from old timers telling me how great the silver fishing was in Resurrection Bay during the great Seward Silver Salmon Derby. When I was finally able to buy my first boat three years ago, I purchased one I could use trolling salt water close to shore with hopes of catching tons of those huge Seward Silvers. In the last three years, virtually no Salmon have showed up in Resurrection bay during the derby. If the fishing was going to be even average the last several years your were required to make the run all the way out to Pony Cove, a trip I only dare make on the days with excellent weather. So back to my original question, were have all the silvers that used to clog the bay like the do in Valdez gone, and is there any hope of them returning?
