This final tournament of the 2011 season also marks the end of Lake Champlain’s tenth year of welcoming pro anglers to the Adirondack Coast. “Lake Champlain is always a favorite stop among our anglers, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be visiting with the Walmart FLW Tour stop in September,” said Kathy Fennel, FLW Outdoors president of operations. “The incredible hospitality extended to FLW Outdoors and our anglers is one of the reasons we continue to come back year after year.”
