~ Hendrickson Hatch Catch &
Release Fly Fishing Tournament 2016 ~
FISH THE GREAT SALMON RIVER!
Dear Fly Anglers, May 02 2016
As you may already know, this year's Hendrickson Hatch tournament is planned for the first weekend of June. By late March we hope to have a 2016 brochure posted to this Internet site. This year's tournament price is $50 pre-registration and $60 at the door. As usual we are planning an evening at Donovan's restaurant with Ribs and hamburgers and Hot dogs. To register simply print the brochure, fill it out, and send it with your check to the MRF, Post Office box 211, Malone, NY 12953.
We have some great news for the fishery. We are planning to spend $2000 to stock the river with some larger rainbows before the tournament. We also are planning another stocking of equal quantity for the new C&R section. That stocking will not occur until after the HH tournament (I will explain why when I describe the rules).
The HH committee is looking forward to another great tournament like we have had in the past. If you have any questions please feel free to call or email me.
Please check out the NEW "River Conditions" tab at the top of the website.
Tight lines everyone.
John and Glen
