~ Hendrickson Hatch Catch &
Release Fly Fishing Tournament 2014 ~
FISH THE GREAT SALMON RIVER!
Malone Revitalization Foundation will be hosting our 10th anniversary of the Hendrickson Hatch tournament on May 31 and June 1, 2014. Plan your calendar now for this year's tournament. We are now accepting registrations - print the brochure above and send your registration to the address on the brochure.
April 22 Fishing Report - Water levels have dropped to a normal late April level. Fishing will still be challenging as water levels are still somewhat high and water temperatures are cold. There is still a lot of snow melting in the upper drainage basin of the Salmon River so expect cold water and higher water levels for a couple more weeks. Any fishing is going to be drifting nymphs and streams underwater. I don't expect any dry fly action until May. Happy Fishing! John
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.
