FISH THE GREAT SALMON RIVER!
During the first weekend of June Malone, New York will host the 9th Annual Hendrickson Hatch Fly Fishing Tournament. Anglers are invited to come to town June 1&2, 2013 to fish one of the North Country's most productive streams, the Great Salmon River. We have a special offer for participants that preregister for this year's tournament: any pre-registered participant will get a 10% discount on purchases at The Hungry Trout Fly Shop in Wilmington through May 31, 2013. Upon arrival of your registration I will notify Evan at the fly shop and when you show up at the shop mention your registration in this tournament and you will receive your discount.
Flowing north through Franklin County, the Salmon River drains the foothills of the Adirondacks and winds its way through the town and village of Malone before dumping into the St. Lawrence River. Interested anglers may print a mail-in brochure for registration in this year's tournament. Members of the Malone Revitalization Foundation would like to thank all sponsors for supporting this event. Please visit the links below to learn more about this year's tournament sponsors. Special thanks to Brookfield Power for being a premier sponsor for the 8th consecutive year.
Fishing Report - May 24, 2013 - Sorry I have not posted fishing reports more often. I haven't had much time to be on the water this spring. I would like to give a river update for those planning to get out for the Memorial Day weekend. We have had about 2.5 inches of rain here in Malone over the past 4 days. The result is a pretty high water level. I would say the river is fishable, but certainly expect high water. We are one week away from this year's Hendrickson Hatch - I'll be posting a river report on Wednesday evening. See you at the tournament.
A CATCH AND RELEASE BUDDY TOURNAMENT
Fishing will take place on the Salmon River between the Chasm Falls dam and State Route 37 in Westville, NY. A map of the Salmon River will be given to each participant for a reference.
