~ Hendrickson Hatch Catch &
Release Fly Fishing Tournament 2017 ~
FISH THE GREAT SALMON RIVER!
Dear Fly Anglers, June 29th 2016
The Hendrickson Hatch organizing committee wishes to thank all the anglers who participated in this years event. The tournament was a great success. We had a total of 50 anglers. 43 adults and 7 in the youth category. After a 1 year absence, we were not sure how things would turn out but things could not have been better. There were many familiar faces and a few new ones. We will be discussing the future of the tournament shortly to see if this will continue to be an annual event. We also want to thank all our sponsors for their generosity with the tremendous donations. Please see the list of our sponsors on this site and use them for your fly fishing needs. We need to help support them in order for them to continue supporting this tournament. I will continue to update the river conditions tab for those planning on fishing the river. Have a great summer, be safe and see you on the water.
Once again, Thank you to all who participated.
Please check out the NEW "River Conditions" tab at the top of the website.
Tight lines everyone.
John and Glen
