Fishtory | The Salmon Banks 1950

This video is a great opportunity to look back on our salmon fisheries. Salmon fishermen are currently fishing the sound for chum salmon, so this is a very interesting window into the history of the region.

Enjoy more vintage film from the Anacortes Museum showing a day on a purse seiner on the Salmon Banks circa 1950. This is expanded footage from clips included in the Perfect Port, featuring Joe Maticich, Mike Pirak, Benny Colacino, and more local fishermen. The old film is introduced by Bret Lunsford and Gib Moore.
