Annual Fishing Tournaments

With so many lakes, streams, and ponds, and of course, our famed St. Lawrence River, it’s no wonder St. Lawrence County hosts so many fishing derbies and tournaments.

One of our most notable is the Bassmaster Elite Series which usually happens every summer in Waddington, with a number of professional and amateur tournaments in Massena and Ogdensburg. A full schedule of fishing tournaments can be found at www.Fishcap.net
