Hendrickson Hatch Fly Fishing Tournament set

MALONE —The ninth-annual Hendrickson Hatch Fly Fishing Tournament will be held in Malone the weekend of June 1 and 2.

According to a press release, the community-sponsored event evolved in spring 2005 with hopes of drawing attention to one of the North Country’s most productive streams: the Salmon River. The event’s success over the past eight years has demonstrated that this river is one of New York’s State’s finest trout fishing streams, the release states.

Tournament registration will run from 8 until 9:45 a.m. at North Country Community College’s Tulloch campus. Fishing will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 1, and ends at 2 p.m. Sunday, June 2.

Registration fee is $40 for adults and $15 for children 12 and under. All proceeds for the tournament will go to the Malone Revitalization Foundation for continued enhancement of the Salmon River.

An awards ceremony and chicken and ribs barbeque will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday afternoon at the Tulloch campus. Plaques will be awarded to the top three winning fishermen based on the total number of inches accumulated. Every participant will be entered in a drawing for the chance to win miscellaneous door prizes.

The Hendrickson Hatch Fly Fishing Tournament is a catch-and-release buddy tournament. Interested anglers may contact John Miletich at 483-6333 to register or visit for a brochure and additional information.
