The annual Hendrickson Hatch Fly Fishing Tournament has been set for Saturday and Sunday, June 1-2 in Malone.
Tournament registration will run from 8 to 9:45 am at North Country Community College in Malone. Fishing will begin at 10 am on Saturday, and ends at 1 pm on Sunday.
Registration fee is $70 online or at the door for adults and $25 for children 16 and under. Proceeds from the tournament are going to the Malone Revitalization Foundation for continued enhancement of the Salmon River. Registration includes an invitation to Saturday evening’s reception at the American Legion and a pulled pork, hamburger and hotdog barbecue on Sunday afternoon. Family members are invited to the BBQ for $10; kids 12 and under eat free.
Plaques will be awarded to the top three winning anglers based on the total number of inches accumulated. A plaque will also be awarded to the angler with the largest trout landed and released.
Every participant will be entered in a drawing for the chance to win miscellaneous door prizes. Over 35 local businesses have donated prizes for tournament entrants. Organizers offer thanks to Brookfield Power for a cash donation used to stock fish in the Salmon River, North Country Community College for its fine venue and all sponsors, and Runnings home and garden department store for money toward prizes.
