SILVER SALMON FISHING EXPECTED TO BE GOOD LAST WEEK OF SEASON
Silver salmon fishing is picking up but no one has been able to top the 16.96 pound silver salmon Tommy Jobe of Washington, Oklahoma caught August 17th. Jobe was trolling four miles out of the Valdez harbor by the Gold Mine when he caught a big one. 
In the Halibut Derby, the early front runner was David Jamison of Fairbanks who reeled in a 253 pound halibut May 29th. Jamison said he didn’t realize how big the prize was until he got back to Port Valdez. “My jaw dropped when I found out it was $15,000” said Jamison. Even way back in May, Jamison knew a 253 pound fish had a chance of holding on to the end of the derby.
